I'm no SCSI expert by any means, bu I would:

 - Check all the usual SCSI potential problems (termination, etc).

 - Upgrade your aic7xxx driver to the newest release:


   I know it says it's for 2.1.x kernels, but the SCSI code has not 
   changed wrt 2.0.30.

 - Upgrade to 2.0.30 (Can't hurt, but not sure you *need* to do it;
   I running the above driver under 2.0.30).

 - If problems persist, subscribe to the aic7xxx mailing list.
