Suse 7.2 on dell

I want to install SuSe 7.2 on a dell machine, but in the boot progress it tells me that I have no HDs installed. I have a SCSI card(aic7xxx), and I know that is a problem. I have been looking on the net for some new drivers, but it seems as if it is impossible.

Please help

If you're using the text-mode install, you need to load the adaptec module (aic7xxx) before you start lokking for block devices. I have only used the GUI install once and that was just for kicks so I don't know how to install the modules.
