Does anyone know how to install Linux on a system running AIC-7860 as SCSI

My motherboard is Iwill P55TV which uses 7860 as Ultra SCSI controller.
The bootdisks from Slackware 3.0.0 and 3.1.0 (aha2940 and aha2x4x.s)
don't work. My harddisk and CD-ROM drive couldn't be detected. I have no
clues on how to install Linux on my system...

Thanks in advance for any help!

Does anyone know if this is correct, because I've just bought a Dell
PowerEdge with Adaptec AIC-7890s and AIC-7860 (CD-ROM card) with a view to
installing Linux (and unfortunately NT!) and Oracle - I'll be a bit gutted
if Linux can't install on it.

Both RedHat 5.2 and Slackware 3.6 completely hang the machine when trying to
detect it; I can't even turn the machine off using the power button!

I've checked on the Adaptec web site and they don't have any info on Linux -
only SCO I think.
