At least there are three modules:

aic79xx, aic7xxx, aic7xxx_old

I checked CD1 Severn with "linux noprobe" and I was able to find
"Adaptec ..." lines with aic79xx and aic7xxx drives (placed beetween

So please double check what are you doing.

If your controller was not recognized by Anaconda automagically you
probably will want to boot to rescue mode (linux rescue), look what
modules are loaded (lsmod) and then (if no module for your SCSI adapter
has been loaded) try to post output of command:

lspci -v
