Title: Re: [ovirt-users] oVirt virtio drivers for fedora 5

Maybe you can make this two disks larger, make more extended partitions on them and move partitions from disks 3 and 4 to this two and modify fstab accordingly?
Or if you don't need separate mount points you can extend space on / and move data to / filesystem tree and remove fstab entries,
and use only 1 virtual disk, if it's acceptable.
All this can be done from modern OS, you can connect all 4 disks via virtio drivers, connect 5th disk, move data to it, install fedora5 bootloader,
modify fstab and than reattach to original vm via IDE.

We have converted a very old fedora 5 server to run on oVirt. However, since the Fedora 5 does not have virtio drivers, or virtio-scsi drivers, the disks are connected to virtual IDE interface. The problem here is on a single IDE interface, we cannot connect more than 2 disks. But the old converted server had 4 disks on 2 IDE controllers.
First question is can we add one more virtual IDE Controller to the VM? If yes, please share the procedure. Or whether any one can share the proper virtio or virtio scsi for fedora 5 OS drivers so that we can get other two inactive disks working.
Unfortunately we cannot upgrade from Fedora 5 at the moment.
Await your inputs.
Thanks & Regards,
