Installer could not detect the SATA hard drive that was connected through
a Promise SATA150 TX4 PCI interface card (non-RAID). At the partitioning
step, no hard drives were available. Still working on a way to get Debian
to see my drive... Promise provides driver source code but my old drive
crashed and the MB doesn't support new, high-capacity drives. Is it
possible to have that driver on the install CD?
