# man ahd

     ahd -- Adaptec PCI/PCI-X Ultra320 SCSI host adapter driver

     This driver provides access to the SCSI bus(es) connected to Adaptec
     AIC7901 and AIC7902 host adapter chips.  These chips are found on many
     motherboards as well as the 29320 and 39320 Adaptec SCSI controller

So I guess you just need to load the ahd module, which you can do at
installation time (even if from floppy, there is a third 'drivers.flp' disk)

If all else fails, then have an IDE disk for booting from, and use the SCSI
disks for data.
