    I got a lot of feedback with problems with the Adaptec 2904 card on linux.
    May be you have the chance to get it work with some options for the scsi-driver
     ... I don`t know.

    Do you have the chance to try an other scsi controller?

    I like the ncr53c8xx (ncr = symbios logic = lsi logic) controllers.
    Especially the ncr53c810 controllers have been very interesting for
    scanning (fast scsi => long cables) and have been not too expensive,
    but as far as I know they are not produced any more.

    If possible try the card before you buy one or make sure you can give
    it back when it does not work.
