Add module (driver) while installing RHEL 5

It's an interview question for Linux System Administrator,

You want to install RHEL 5 operating system on server machine. Unfortunately RHEL 5 doesn't detect your hard disk. But you need to install it on that hard disk. How will you do ? You have module disk ( Driver CD/DVD) for that hard disk and RHEL 5 DVD.

I felt this is too hard and searched in several places, But actually it's simple thing, ( I didn't try practically because i don't have that much advance or old hard disk). Ok let us see those very simple steps.
Step 1 : Insert the RHEL 5 CD/DVD and boot from CD/DVD. We will get following screen,

Redhat Boot Screen

Step 4 : It asks whether you have driver disk or not. Select Yes and hit enter. you'll get following screen.

Step 5 : Insert your Driver Disk and hit enter. It'll install needed driver from disk.

Now your Hard Disk is detected by the RHEL 5 CD/DVD. Now we can install OS in this Hard Disk.

* Still I not use this method. Hope this will work. If you face this problem. Try and commant me.
