    If you boot from a boot disk with the kernel on, does it find the
    adaptor? If you have IDE disks, does the BIOS allow a fallback to
    booting from a SCSI disk? Is the BIOS on the card enabled? Are all the
    SCSI drivers compiled into the kernel or as modules? (They have to be
    in the kernel to boot from the SCSI disk). If all those answers are
    yes, then the only thing I can think of is that you may need to re-run
    LILO (it needs to be run anytime the kernel file changes).

    As far as the DIP switches, here's the meanings:

    1&2: BIOS address
    - 1 off, 2 off - C800h - C8FFh
    - 1 on, 2 off - D800h - D8FFh
    - 1 off, 2 on - D000h - D3FFh
    - 1 off, 2 off - BIOS disabled

    3&4: I/O address
    3&4 off: 220-22Fh; 3 on, 4 off - 200-20Fh; 3 off, 4 on - 110-11Fh;
    3&4 on - 100-10Fh

    5,6,7: IRQ
    5 on - disabled, 5 off - enabled
    6&7 off - 15; 6 on, 7 off - 14; 6 off, 7 on - 11; 6&7 on - 10

    8 - on = synchronous xfer, off = async
    9 - on = floppy controller enabled, off = disbaled
