installed fedora 9 to non-raid scsi hard drive adaptec 39160 not detected first boot
I'm trying to install Fedora Core 9 to a non-raid SCSI hard drive with an Adaptec 39160 controller. It hangs after saying "waiting for hardware to initialize..." I have searched to no avail for boot options for SCSI support but cannot find any. Is there a way to force the correct driver. I loaded another basic version of Linux from the Ultimate Boot Cd and it saw the SCSI card as a AIC-7899 but I don't see anything like that come up on boot with Fedora. Please let me know how I can troubleshoot this problem. Thank you.
UPDATE: OK I hit Ctrl-Alt-F4 or something, it showed me what was happening. it is hanging while loading my IDE cd-rom as a SCSI cd-rom. Is there a way to stop that?
FURTHER UPDATE: OK I was able to complete the installation using the linux noprobe option. My problem is now, on reboot I see the Grub menu but Linux will not load when I select it. It doesn't find the SCSI drive. I get a setuproot: error that /dev, /proc and /sys can't be found and /dev/selinux can't be found. How do I use a SCSI kernel or load the module as the computer is booting.
