RAID autodetect too early

my problem is SW RAID autodetect. Linux is Debian with 2.4.24 kernel, which boots from IDE (no RAID). The IDE driver are compiled into kernel.
Now I added a Promise SATA controler (S150 TX4) with 4 SATA drives building RAID1 and RAID5. The SATA controler uses a driver only available as module, emulating SCSI devices. SCSI and RAID support are compiled into kernel.

The SATA driver is told by a line in "/etc/modules.conf":
"alias scsi_hostadapter ft3xx

Now, if it boots following happens:
RAID autodetect
Because RAID is on SCSI and autodetect runs before, autodetections fails.

What is wrong?
