PE SC1425 SCSI Disks not recognised

I have a PE SC1425 with U320 SCSI card & 2 hard drives. I have tried 
Debian Sarge (& Sid) using the 2.6.8 kernel to no avail. Whatever I try 
the installer reports 'no partitionable disks found'.

I have tried installing with the disks configured as RAID1 (HostRAID) 
and no RAID. The installer clearly recognises the U320 and loads the 
AIC78XX driver but cannot find the disks attached to it.

Any suggestions? Has anyone succeeded in installing Debian Sarge on a PE 
SC1425 SCSI and if so how? If not, are there any free distributions that 
will work on the 1425 SCSI out of the box? I'm not interested in RedHat 
or SuSE, I have both and am moving away from them.
