You need to specify the image name before the kernel arguments.

It'll probably be 'linux', so you'd have to type

'linux sym53c8xx=safe:y'

But I don't think it'll be much help.

Perhaps you could start a shell from inside the installer (switch to the
second console using leftalt-f2), and do a 'cat /proc/pci'; this usually
helps to identify unknown PCI cards.


Ps. I haven't tried an install for some time, so I don't know whether
the image name and the second console are still valid.
