Adaptec AIC-6250 SCSI and Linux

Has anyone had any luck getting the AIC-6250 SCSI protocol chip
to work with Linux?  (I think it's similar to the AHA-1510 and AHA-1520).

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.
