SCSI aha152x conundrum


I've installed Red Hat 9 that came with _Red Hat Linux 9 Bible_ this past week. I had some soundcard issues, but was able to find the solution in the Hardware Forum. I have an Adaptec AHA1520B/1522B ISA controller attached to a 1GB internal Jaz drive. I've searched Google and many Linux sites. One suggested running modprobe aha152x. I tried that and found out the command wasn't found or installed. I'm a newbie and am a little fuzzy about what I need to do to get my installation to recognize the controller and Jaz drive. I'm a little frustrated because Windoze 9x, NT, XP and Beos all found and correctly configured the drive. Does anyone have any words of wisdom, other than 'buying a new scsi card' ?

Were you logged as root when you tried the modprobe command?
modprobe is located in /sbin.

You will probably need to know add the controller configuration when using the modproble command like IRQ, MEM I/O and controller ID.

modprobe aha152x io=0x140 irq=10 scsiid=7
or
modprobe aha152x aha152x=0x140,9
