If I go to the 3ware website to download the source for the module for the Escalade 8006 it gives me the source 3w-xxxx.c, so I am quite sure its the right module.I suspect the former, which makes this a red herring. It's just as likely that the 3w-xxxx module is not the right one for your hardware,
The module is not on the initrd as you point out.
How should I be installing the scsi-extra-modules via the network install? Or should they have already been detected.
I choose: "Load installer components", "net-retreiver" but scsi-extra-modules doesn't seem to be available there.
Well, I would, but I can't install till the 3w-xxxx module is loaded.or fails to detect your disks, or that there is some other problem. Send us a full set of logs, please. Preferably in a proper and complete installation report filed in the bug tracking system.
