Use a cheap SCSI card with a Symbios 53c810 chip on it. I've got two SCSI
cards. One is a Diamond Fireport 40 (UW, with Symbios 53c875 chip) and the
other is a no-name card with a 53c810 chip. The scanner is the only device
connected to the second card and this works just fine.
I have never understood why people don't use Symbios cards instead of
Adaptec. They are much cheaper and work (AFAICT) just as good.
