You'll need a driver disk for your SCSI card to handle this, and you'll
almost certainly need to create this yourself. Unfortunately there's not
a lot of information around the Net on building driver disks for Fedora
(most of the information is for 2.4.x kernels and Red Hat 7.x driver
disks). I've made one for the unsupported Advansys SCSI card in one of
my home machines that I used to install FC3 with; I'll try to post a
quick HOWTO later on when I've more time.
