Are you trying to reinstall on a newer version of SuSE? After the SuSE
default kernel changed from 2.4 to 2.6, certain SCSI drivers did not
work. Or at least did not work automatically. Advansys controllers were
one of the controllers that did not work under 2.6 kernel.

Perhaps this will help you track down the problem.

I had Advansys SCSI controllers for some peripherals, and for me the
easiest solution was a couple Adaptec 2940AU controllers from eBay for
around $8 each.
