    I don't believe that's the ncr53c8xx driver. That looks like the
    53c7,8xx driver. I don't think it's really maintained any more, or
    frankly that it could ever handle a 53c896 card, which could explain
    it only seeing the 810a and not the 896 your boot disk is on.

    You really want to use the sym53c8xx driver anyway - it is the one
    being worked on in earnest now. I believe it will pick up 810a
    controllers as well.

    (yes that's three ncr/symbios/lsi drivers in the kernel - "53c7,8xx",
    "ncr53c8xx" and "sym53c8xx" ...)
