How far did you came with the SuSE boot disk?
In case you just did not get the right idea:
- find out what kind of SCSI controller you have, if you can.
- enter the menu "load kernel modules" --> "load scsi driver" or so.
- select the right module and watch what happens when it loads.
(if you cannot find out what scsi driver you have, try loading all
of them one by one until one of them loads successfully AND FINDS
YOUR HARDWARE ! Perhaps you need the 'modules'-floppy, too.)
If that works, go back and continue with "Installation from CD", the
system now tries to mount the CD, if that fails, well come back here :-)
