Have you installed Windows on the system? If not, the watch the bottom of the screen carefully as the installation starts - it'll prompt you to press F6 to install RAID/SCSI drivers. So, press F6 with the floppy inserted in the drive and you should be good to go.

Are you sure that you've got the right drivers for the device? You may want to try the Silicon Image support for some help with this particular device.

You should be able to find the correct drivers on ASUS' download site.
