Adaptec AIC-7860

Can anyone tell me if on-board Adaptec AIC-7860 SCSI chip is supported by
Linux? This number doesn't appear in lastest aic7xxx.c although 7880, 7870
and 7850 are all there.

Or do I need to run it as AIC-7850 with no Ultra SCSI support?

Thanks in advance.

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.
