milo hangs on detecting ncr53c8xx in SX after swapping slots


I just swapped out my Matrox Millenium for a Radeon VE/7000 on my SX box,
but I ran into a weird problem. After swapping the card , the Radeon did not 
come up OK , seems it failed to initialize the BIOS. 

I swapped it from the first to the second 32 bit pci slot , moving the scsi 
card from that that slot to the first slot. This is a symbios 53c810 narrow 
controller. I also have an adaptec 2940 for my harddisks.
After that , the radeon did initialize its bios , arc would come up and find 
all hardware ok , and start milo.
When telling Milo to boot, it will probe the hardware, and then , when it 
found the scsi controller using the sym53c810 driver , it will find it again
with the ncr53c8xx driver , hangs milo because of a resourcing conflict 
between the 2 drivers....
At least , thats what I figure from the messages milo gives out before it 

Is there a way to tell milo not to probe for ncr53c8xx ? 
Or even , not to halt on errors because I boot from the adaptec, which gets 
detected ok.

All hints are appreciated !
