Install Debian on a PS/2 9557 with 486 & integral SCSI controller?

Pre-purchase question about Debian on a PS/2 9557.

I am considering buying a set of Debian installation CDs to install on
my PS/2 with a 486 SLC CPU, and an integral SCSI controller on the
motherboard.  The bus is MCA, of course. I have a 540 MB SCSI hard
drive, and a 4X Sony, SCSI CD-ROM.

With this equipment, is it likely that a Debian install will work?

I have had trouble trying to install Red Hat, because neither the boot
disk nor the CD-ROM contained a driver for the integral SCSI
controller.  Therefore, the CD-ROM could not be accessed to load linux.
