Perc3/Di. From RedHat you have to follow these
steps, maybe Debian has something similar:
1. Boot the first CD. At the boot prompt type: expert noprobe
2. When prompted for the driver disk say: No
3. When prompted for the driver to load choose: aacraid and check the
box for passing extra options to the driver.

5. You may then select the additional drivers you may need by the
6. The standard graphical install will begin and you should proceed
with standard at this point.
