Problem with Adaptec SCSI adapter

When booting with the adaptec boot image, the slackware install detected my adaptec SCSI controller.

I put in a IDE drive with slackware 10.1 on it, and it does not detect this scsi adapter.

Do I need to recompile my kernel? (and if so, what should I enable?) I tried 'modprobe adaptec', and that didn't do anything

Would it be a good idea to put a CD-ROM drive into this machine, and only re-do the part of the setup that involves installing a kernel (and choose adaptec)?

What model is the SCSI controller? What version of the kernel? The IDE kernels in Slackware have most, if not all, of the Adaptec drivers available as modules. Here are a few:

aic7xxx -> Ultra160 controllers & most all of the older cards
aic79xx -> Ultra320 controllers

The aic7xxx driver supports most of them, so without knowing the specific module, I'd try "modprobe aic7xxx".
