    I get a completely blank screen until the screen saying 'To install windows XP press enter, to use recovery console press R'
    all well and good except that I can't see what i'm doing when I am trying to configure my RAID controller, because the entire time where one would 'press f6 to specify an additional controller' the screen is blank!

    Well, that's one thing, I managed to get past that by sorta making a textsetup.oem that would get it working, but I probably didn't do it right, because I finally got my RAID controller working, and XP setup says 'i can't format this, install somewhere else' after formatting the entire thing!

    The only wierd thing about my RAID array is that it ( currently ) only has one drive in it...I am going to be mounting another in a few months...
