my kernel has aic7xxx driver enabled by default, so your only chance is a
kernel which has simply that and not much else. Note that Adaptec were not
good supported under Linux as well (thy conflict easily with other drivers).

You can cross compile your own, and it isn't even too hard. However, it is
much simpler for me to compile you a special kernel. I will try to build a
kernel for you with only aic7xxx scsi driver, and little else.

Please remind me if you have not heard from me till tuesday next week.
