With the 2.6.9 there's a scsi module called "sym53c8xx".

I used to compile the kernels myself, but i got tired. I don't need
external patch to support special HW, so the Debian binary packages
are ok for me.

My suggestion is to use the Debian tools to build them
("kernel-package" package) and start with a sane config if you have
trouble to creating one that works, for example the config you'll find
with one of the binary package...
