Exclamation Installing SuSE 9.3 on L440GX+ Intel Server


I'm trying to install SuSE 9.3 on the L440GX+ Intel Server. It boots from the CD fine, loads the kernel, but "hangs" when trying to load the 'aic7xxxx.ko' module.

As a Linux Newbie, I have no clue what that module is. Google.com seems to indicate it has something to do with SCSI. I have disabled the SCSI adapters in the BIOS, but it still "hangs".

Is there a way to prevent it from loading that module? Or what else should I try?

P.S. "Hangs" means that it is stuck, but not frozen. I can still issue commands.

I know with fedora when you boot off the cd you have the option of using a console before booting... you could try to boot the installer in safe mode.. although this might not detect all the hardware if you install all packages you should be fine upon first boot...

Just a suggestion and its probably not the most sophisticated fix so you might wanna hang out and wait for someone with more experience.
