My first thought is did you try the HP site. They usually have drivers available for each OS that the machine is compatible with. If it's not on there, then there won't be any HP drivers anywhere, you'll have to find an alternative solution.
I just realized you said it wasn't detecting the harddrive, so I did a quick Google search for you and SLES 9 is compatible with the xw6600. You don't mention if you are using desktop or server, but if it works with server, then it will probably work with the desktop version and I believe your first harddrive should be located at either /dev/sda or /dev/hda.

I thought about this some more and I believe the driver issue will be the LSI controller for your hard drives. If your installer has an option to add a driver before installation, then find out exactly what hard drive controller you are using and try to find a Linux compatible driver for it.
You can probably check out the SUSE site or some other Linux oriented site. Otherwise, you will need SP4 for SUSE 9.
