From the 5.1 compatibility page:
6.3 Tier 2 Supported SCSI Adapters
The following SCSI adapters are partially supported:
NCR 53c875-based adapters
NCR 53C400; NCR 53C810, 53C810A, 53C815, 53C820, 53C825
Trantor T128, T128F, T228
I don't think yours is in there. Might try doing a basic install on some
vanilla IDE hardware and recompile the 2.0.35 (latest stable) kernel
with support for your card:
NCR 53C400 (Trantor T130B) (use generic NCR 5380 SCSI support)
NCR 53C406a (Acculogic ISApport / Media Vision Premium 3D SCSI)
NCR chips 53C7x0
NCR chips 53C810, 53C815, 53C820, 53C825, 53C860, 53C875, 53C895
The Kernel support and a quick look through my source tree says it's
there. Probably just not audetectable from Redhat's module install.
Anyway, with the new kernel, you can transfer stuff to your SCSI drives
and be off and running.
