NOTE: CentOS Enterprise Linux 5 is built from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux source code. Other than logo and name changes CentOS Enterprise Linux 5 is compatible with the equivalent Red Hat version. This document applies equally to both Red Hat and CentOS Enterprise Linux 5.

Chapter 7. Driver Media for Intel® and AMD Systems

7.1. Why Do I Need Driver Media?

While the Red Hat Enterprise Linux installation program is loading, a screen may appear asking you for driver media. The driver media screen is most often seen in the following scenarios:

  • If you need to perform an installation from a network device

  • If you need to perform an installation from a PCMCIA device

  • If you run the installation program by entering linux dd at the installation boot prompt (Itanium users should enter elilo linux dd)

  • If you run the installation program on a computer which does not have any PCI devices
