It's my 140.  I've attached the lspci output at the end.  However, every
PReP box I have has an onboard Symbios 53c8xx SCSI controller compatible
with the sym53c8xx v2 driver.  That driver probably covers 99% (if not
100%, but I'm not sure) of all RS/6000 PReP boxes.  Even my Motorola
Powerstack has a sym53c8xx controller.
