Redhat 9 insall probs, no HD's Found

Ok, first off.... thanks for looking.
Second, I am a complete Linux Newbie, so please be overly explicit in your answers (exactly what to type, and how to get to the correct screen to type, etc....

Now my Prob. I have had this same problem with two different computers now.
First.... I tried to install Redhat9 on a Supermicro X5DAL-TG2 (Dual XEON) with SiI 3112A SATA Controllers.
I downloaded the Linux driver for the SATA Controller, typed the " linux dd " at boot prompt.... it asks me if I have a driver disk, I click yes... it scans the floppy but then says " no compatable device found... would you like to manual choose "
SO I say yes.... select the driver... hit enter.
It seems to select the driver, but then says " no Hard Drives Found. You may need to manually install them "
Then it asks me if I have any other devices to install.

I tried reselecting the driver (when it asks if I have other devices to install) but still no go.
It just wont see the Hard Drives.

So I figure it might be the SATA controllers, so I try on my other computer. It is an IWill MPX2 (DUAL AMD) with a ACARD 4Channel ATA133 Raid Card (model AEC-6885).
I download the linux RedHat9 driver, type " linux dd " at boot prompt, and the exact same thing happens as before.

So, my questions are... how do I manually install Hard Drives (they are connected... they are seen fine by WinXP, FDisk, etc..), or how do I (what to type etc...) to get them recognized after I type the " linux dd " and insert the floppy.

Thanks in advance
