Unhappy SuSE 8.1 w/Promise FastTrak100TX2

Hello out there,

Yes! As a newbie I am having problems installing SuSE 8.1 with the ide controller (FastTrak100TX2). I am aware of the Promise Technology Drivers and I have downloaded them. Unfortunately I'm not in front of my own computer and documents, but I believe the problem that I'm having is that I do not know how to perform some of the "basic task" necessary so that the Driver will be acknowledged.
I've gotten as far as the YaST message for Partion: No disk detected it says (in so many words); I've been calling, emailing, and searching Promise Tech., SuSE, and Google for at least 2 months.
I'm using:
2 AMD CPU's (2200 MP)
2 Maxtor 80GB HD's
2 Samsung 955DF
Radeon 9500 Pro Graphics Card
SoundBlaster Platinum 2
Windows XP Professional (hopefully partitioned next to SuSE 8.1)

for help if there is any other pertinent information needed please tell...
Okay, thanks
ps if there is a better Linux distro that works better with The FastTrak100TX2 ...
