Help with raid support on my laptop

I am having problems installing slackware 10 on my laptop. I would like to dual boot with windows XP, my problem is that the slackware installer is not recognizing the HDD. I believe this is because i don't have the correct boot image. For windows the raid controllers are as follows:
WinXP promise RAID console SCSI processor device
WinXP Promise FastTrack 378 (tm) Controller

I know that those are windows drivers, but hopefully there is enough information listed above for somone to point me in the right direction for finding linux drivers for my RAID.

If you have any other suggestions they would also be great.

Thank you in advance for your time and effort in helping me.

Two things:

1) The info you gave about the raid controller doesn't tell me enough, boot a live CD and post the output of lspci.

2) Where does the laptop come in at?
