Promise DC-440 SCSI controller

I am unable to get linux to recognize the Promise Technologies DC-440 SCSI controller.
It is supposedly Adaptec 1542 compatible, yet it it recognized as a Buslogic controller by
slackware's 2.1 install kernels. (1.1.59 I think). If it helps, here is a dump of d:c800
so you can see the signature.

I am really frustrated. If anyone has any ideas for this, i would greatly appreciate it.  

 
 
 

1. DC-2040 PROMISE SCSI controller

 I've got a DC-2040 PROMISE SCSI controller.. it's from a long time
 that I try to use it with linux, but i can't because according to
 Linux it does not exist .. I've passed through kernel 1.0.8 to
 1.1.52 (my actual one) and i've also tried to re-write a scsi
 driver only to detect (not run) the scsi controller from linux..
 but nothing to do... My last & next step it's .. post here a message
 and ask for an help... If anyone knows a way to work with that
 controller please answer...   thanx a lot...
