RAID autodetect too early


Hello,
my problem is SW RAID autodetect. Linux is Debian with 2.4.24 kernel, which boots from IDE (no RAID). The IDE driver are compiled into kernel.
Now I added a Promise SATA controler (S150 TX4) with 4 SATA drives building RAID1 and RAID5. The SATA controler uses a driver only available as module, emulating SCSI devices. SCSI and RAID support are compiled into kernel.

The SATA driver is told by a line in "/etc/modules.conf":
"alias scsi_hostadapter ft3xx

Now, if it boots following happens:
IDE
RAID autodetect
SCSI
Because RAID is on SCSI and autodetect runs before, autodetections fails.

What is wrong?
