Adding drivers to ISO


I'm a semi-Poweruser using XP but a newbie here. Trying to install SuSE 11 on a 64-bit Intel box. All HDs are on a RocketRaid 2340 SATA card, so of course the installer on the dvd (iso image) can't see them, and thus can't install the Linux system.

I have or can get the needed drivers (I think), but all of the advice for modifying an iso image describes using Linux commands and software (most of which I don't understand/don't have). All of my other machines are XP, so that is what I must use to create a new install dvd.

All help appreciated!

You can add the driver from say a floppy or usb device during install... just after booting from the dvd. There is no need to modify the iso
