No hard drives found during installation SCSI
I am a newbie to debian though I have some experience in using Redhat.
I am trying to install debian on my old machine that has a Quantum XP39100W SCSI hard drive. The controller is an Adaptec AHA-2940 Ultra W
I downloaded the isos and using the cd, i tried to install. But as soon as I get into the installation menu, I cannot see the hard drives at all. I get the error message similar to "No hard drives" whenever I try any menu-option such as "view the partition table" or "format the hard drive" or "mount an exisiitng linux partition" and so on...
I have Red hat running on it currently and there's nothing worng in the system since I am easily able to install redhat on it again. The CD also is fine since I was able to install debian on a different machine...
I tried giving a few options to the boot such as irq etc., but since I couldnt ifnd anything appropriate for my hardware, I got to the same situation. Can someone please tell me how can I install debian on this machine.
