Debian install can't detect NetRaid 3si


I'm trying to install Debian "Sarge" 2.4 or 2.6 kernel on an intel based rack server. The server has an HP NetRaid-3si controller with 4 disks in a raid level 5 array. I've tried using the kernel select install disk(Disk 1) and the bf2.4 install (Disk 5). I also tried the bf2.4 install from Debian "Woody". I made an attempt to load the modules from a disk I created from another debian system. On the disk I included the megaraid, megaraid2, and scsi_mod modules, but while loading scsi_mod, I get a load failure message. Does scsi_mod have any other dependencies? in the modules.dep file it listed none(unless I read it wrong). So my question is, is there any special way of going about getting the debian installer to detect the NetRaid? Thanks in advance!


I switched into one of the terminals, and mounted the floppy drive. I used insmod to load the megaraid module and it detected the drives! I'm completing the install now. Hopefully the Raid level 5 was maintained and it didn't install to just one disk. I'll update again once I check that.
