Then I chose the CD installation method. At this point it says that my device driver cannot be found, and gives me a number of different drivers to choose from including several different types of SCSI. I am just not sure which one I should use for the install.  It will not let me go beyond this step.  Any further suggestions would be appreciated.

Device driver for what device?, i seem to have missed that part 
somehow(scratches head), list the options it gives you , this may 
provide a better clue to which device driver you are talking 
about(presumably the harddrive?I hate assuming but i will if i have too 
:) You might also try just randomly picking one of the available 
choices, assuming you have good backups of everything, I don't think it 
would hose anything since if you pick the wrong one it shouldn't work at 
all, sometimes you gotta just stick your neck out....but keep good 
backups , just in case.
