Promise 376/378 pata Drives with SuSE 10.0

when trying to install suse 10.0 oss (64bit) on my pc, the installer won't recognize my harddisks.
to be more exact, the controller is discovered but somehow the disks don't show up and the installation process fails.

since i have also kubuntu 5.10 installed (on the pata harddrive) i've found that kubuntu loads the sata_promise module at startup and everything runs fine.
but when trying to load the sata modules manually with suse, i haven't succeded yet.

my system is a MSI K8T Neo Serie ( MS-6702 Version 1.0 ) motherboard with promise pata/sata controller onboard, using the promise/fasttrak 376/378 chipset.
my drive is attached as pata disk and is mounted as /dev/sda1 under kubuntu.
but how can i get suse to load these module also ?
kernel parameters at bootup ?
