This appears to be a 53C895A based card. I have used a 53C895 card
in my LX without problems. SRM 5.8-1 sees it and will boot from it.
I'm not sure what the A chip suffix signfies. As long as you can return
it, I'd give it a shot.
FYI, I have also used a SYMC1010 based card in the LX. SRM sees
it and boots from it as well.
