You only installed the drivers to your hard drive, you didn't
cause them to be loaded into the kernel at the time of use. This
can be done in several ways, but the easiest is to add a line
similar to your /etc/modules.conf:
alias /dev/sda aic79xx_module_name
where aic79xx_module_name is the name of the kernel module
you need to load. This should be given in the documentation.
read that documentation, and also read the man page for
modules.conf (man modules.conf)

after you do the changes in /etc/modules.conf reboot the machine and take a look to /var/log/dmesg for the scsi initialisation. Also you can issue an "lsmod" command as root, just to see if the driver was loaded.

just download (from adaptec) the rpm package for Red Hat 8 containing the driver, then, as root, do :

rpm -ivh aic.....rpm

then edit the file /etc/modules.conf as is explained back in this thread
