megaraid_sas and mptsas should be included in the default Etch install 
kernel, so your disks should be recognized by the installer. Are they

or aren't they recognized at all?

In the first case, be sure to choose YAIRD and not INITRD during the 
installation, and if it's not sufficient, you can try to follow that:
