Linux wont see SCSI Array at install

I am attempting to install Linux 10 Desktop. The install wont see the RAID Array that was set up on my Adaptec SCSI Card 29320A-R. I have heard that this may be caused by the install using the imbedded 7901 SCSI controller and that there are parameters that can be passed before the install such as "linux dd noprobe" that may help. My problem is that I dont know how to bring up a command line during the install?

What RAID level setup are you using? I'm assuming it's a hardware RAID setup, or do you have at least three drives hooked up and then you're hoping to go in with software RAID and set up the configuration? Also, what distro of Linux are you trying to install?
