This usually occurs when the XP installer doesn't recognise SATA hard drives. If the drives in your system are SATA, you'll need to source the correct SATA drivers for the controller on the motherboard, and have them available on a floppy disk when the installer says to press F6 if you want to install third party drivers. Or you can create a slipstream installer CD with the SATA drivers included, using a slipstreaming utility such as nLite.
If your system drive is not SATA, please provide details of your system hardware so we can try to identify another possible cause.

Did the SCSI controller come with the computer you purchased or was added later?

The SCSI controller is the interface (either on the motherboard or a plug-in card) that provides the SCSI port for the hard drive to connect to. The required driver tells Windows how that controller works.
If the flat data cable from the hard drive goes to an interface directly on the motherboard, we need to know the brand and model of the motherboard, or if the system is a brandname like HP or IBM, the full model number of the system.
If the cable goes to a board plugged into the motherboard, probably in a PCI slot, then we'll need to know the brand and model number of that card. If there is still a functioning Windows on the system, you'll find the SCSI controller listed in the Device Manager.
