Question Installation problem. Installation keeps asking for driver.

Does anyone have a clue as to why my installation boots, states "Loading SCSI driver" for a minute or so, continues with letting me select language, keyboardtype and cd-rom drive (In the Installation Method screen where I select cd-rom it states: "What type of media contains the packages to be installed. I have my installation disk in the dvd-drive)... and then gives the the msg: No driver found , Unable to find any devices of the type needed for this installation type. Would you like to manually select your driver or use a driver disk ?

After I press "Select driver" it gives me a list with all kinds of scsi and raid controllers. The other options in the screen are "Use a driver disk" and "Back". Funny thing is, I don't even have a SCSI controller in my pc.

I'm pretty clueless as to what is wrong .

Thanks for your time,

When asking about cdrom point to your F-7-i386-DVD.iso on your local disk.
