Suse can't see drives

Hi there, I have a server available to me to play with , so I thought it time to dust off my old Suse 9.1 disks and have another crack at entering the Linux world.....

The server has an Adaptec 2110s card with a raid5 array of unpartitioned disk.

Boot from installation CD, I go through the usual front bit, but when we get to drive partitioning the system says No Hard Disks Found ........

Do you think this is an Adaptec Raid issue ? Or have I missed a step ?

Sorted !

Solution download Suse 9.3 and use that instead, this seems to imply that 9.1 either has issues recognising Adaptec 2110S Raid controllers, or can't recognise Fujitsu 9.1gb scsi disks hanging off it. I guess it could be sorted by messing about with various firmware / driver changes, but 9.3 will do for me.
