Micro Solutions only supplies the boot image for Red Hat 7.0. They have
released the source code for there driver to be included in future releases
of the kernel. I would say your current choices are to either use the BP to
install RH7, then upgrade to 7.1. Or use an internal IDE CDROM to
install RH7.1, then install the BP.
