Suse 8.1 installation problem on PowerEdge 2600 with PERC 4/Di

Hi everyone,
We recently obtain a Dell Power Edge 2600 and plan to use the Linux Suse 8.1
with it.
But I meet a problem during the installation process : in fact, the process
cannot detect any hard drive.

We have choosen the PERC 4/Di RAID Controller from LSI Logic Corp with 2
SCSI disks configured in RAID 1.

At :
http://lists.us.dell.com/pipermail/linux-megaraid-devel/2002-October/000421.
html
man says that the megaraid driver is not able to control the U320
controllers yet (that is our situation)

But at :
http://ftp.leo.org/download/pub/comp/general/devices/ncr/fibre_ch/drivers/li
nux/2.01.00/mptlinux.txt
man says the mptscsih module supports U320

However:
"insmod megaraid" says from to kernel "no BIOS enabled" and
"insmod mptscsih" says from to kernel "mptbase: 0 MPT adapters found, 0
installed"
... and I'm stuck here ...

If anyone could help, he would be welcome :-)
Thanks

Guillaume
