Here is the solution I found:
At the boot: prompt I type:
linux reserve=0xD400,32
This way I think that the other drivers cannot corrupt the setup of my
SCSI card before the AdvanSys driver initializes it.
See <http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/BootPrompt-HOWTO-3.html#ss3.5>
for more details on the "reserve" kernel parameter.
