Actual Results: "No valid devices were found" message appears.
lsmod does not show the aic79xx driver.
Expected Results: Installer loads the aic79xx driver automatically.
This can be worked around by building a device driver disk from CD1

switch to a bash prompt prior to setting up the partions and issue a
modprobe aic79xxx. By swapping back to X-windows the install can
continue normally at this point.
The driver is in the initrd used for CD booting. What's the output of
lspci and lspci -n? Also, are you booting from CD or floppy (if you
boot from floppy, you need to boot with linux dd and also supply the
drvblock.img when prompted)?
