Hi Benjamin,

   The problem lied in the kernel's scsi drivers.  For RH6.2, the aic7xxx driver was very very outdated.  After I upgraded to RH7.2, the kernel used the newer scsi drivers (and in turn the pcmcia drivers call the kernel modules), so the card is functional!  I'm doing a backup right now, works great.

Lost in Tokyo,
   Keith
