HPIKL driver CD
Recent versions of Red Hat Linux typically require only driver updates with minor fixes to support HP
workstations. These releases can usually be supported with the HPIKL driver CD, which can be used as
a post-installation utility for the standard Red Hat Linux install.
After you complete the standard Red Hat install and restart the system, a Red Hat first-boot utility runs.
After you specify a number of settings (such as the security level, time and date, root password, user
accounts), the utility lets you to load additional CDs.
The driver CD is used during this phase. All content added by HP is in the /HP directory on the CD.
You can use it to build your own image or to browse the HP content.
NOTE: Some installations may encounter problems if they are performed with a DisplayPort
connection to the monitor. This is because the default drivers that the OS installers use do not support
DisplayPort functionality. If you experience problems, try overriding the monitor choice for DisplayPort
during the start of the install and using the VESA driver instead. You can then set up the DisplayPort
monitor later.
