Question about drivers

Question about drivers

Question about drivers

I have been evaluating Microsoft's Virtual Server for a few weeks, and now I'm looking into VMWare ESX 3.0 because we are considering moving to a more virtualized environment at our company.  I have an ESX eval copy, and I am trying to install it on some old test hardware that I have laying around just so that I can get a feel for how it works (especially compared to the MS solution).  However, I am unable to find storage drivers for a Promise TX2300 RAID controller.  Since you generally wouldn't run ESX on something so lightweight, I wasn't suprised that Promise didn't have any drivers for it.  However, I thought that since ESX is running on some sort of Linux base that I might be able to put something together with Linux drivers.  Does anyone know a good place to find drivers that work with VMWare ESX, or how they differ from more general Linux drivers?

RE: Question about drivers

Have you ask VMWare about this problem???  

RE: Question about drivers

Jeff is right, search the forums, many people have had this kind of issue, and sometimes there are fixes/workarounds, sometimes not.

Good luck,
