I already provided this information by myself very early on in a reply to 
John. In the meantime I was able to install.
The problem was something very different. My FTP server somehow had a 
hickup and wouldn't deliver the kickstart file anymore (I had stated in my 
second posting I'm using kickstart, just for info). So, I realized I had 
never tried a non-kickstart install before. That didn't have a problem and 
didn't need additional drivers. I then checked the kickstart file and 
found that I had accidentally copied and edited the wrong file and 
overlooked that it gave a cdrom as the installation source. There is no cd 
rom and that error message about manually choosing a driver and presenting 
all those storage drivers was misleading me to believe it was looking for 
the RAID driver while it actually was looking for a driver that would help 
it find the CD.

Thanks for your efforts, Karanbir!
