IDE Controller Drivers for Debian Install


I tried installing Debian3 but the installation program couldn't see either of my hard drives behind my PROMISE Technology Ultra66 IDE controller. (A friend and) I've tried rearranging my drives so the two HDDs connect directly to the motherboard, but no matter how they're set up, they're not accessible otherwise.

The installer asked for IDE controller drivers on a floppy, if I had them, so my task is now: finding PROMISE Ultra66 IDE controller Debian drivers.

Could anyone please enlighten me as to where I can find these (or perhaps an alternative method of installing that would work)?
