This weekend I ran into exactly the same problem with parity errors,
but after updating to 6.2.5 driver version, kernel completely stalls just
after the line
SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00

The system in problem is:

Dual PIII-1266,
SuperMicro P3TDER motherboard,
onboard aic7899 SCSI controller:
Bus 0, device 5, function 1:
SCSI storage controller: Adaptec 7899P (#2) (rev 1).
IRQ 27.
Master Capable. Latency=64. Min Gnt=40.Max Lat=25.
I/O at 0xd800 [0xd8ff].
Non-prefetchable 64 bit memory at 0xfeaff000 [0xfeafffff].
Bus 0, device 5, function 0:

IRQ 26.
Master Capable. Latency=64. Min Gnt=40.Max Lat=25.
I/O at 0xd000 [0xd0ff].
Non-prefetchable 64 bit memory at 0xfeafc000 [0xfeafcfff].


I tried both updating driver for kernel 2.4.18-ac3 and switching to
kernel 2.4.19-pre3-ac1 - the same effect. Though on another computer with
Asus P2B-DS motherboard (onboard aic7890) kernel 2.4.19-pre3-ac1 works fine.

Regards,
Andrey.
