  Ok, so I can't use it to boot Linux, but what draiver I need
  to use it? 
  Anyway, Linux seems to recognized it by "/proc/pci":

    Bus  0, device  11, function  1:
      SCSI storage controller: Symbios Logic Inc. (formerly NCR) 53c1010
                       Ultra3 SCSI Adapter (#2) (rev 1).
      IRQ 28.
      Master Capable.  Latency=32.  Min Gnt=17.Max Lat=18.
      I/O at 0x8400 [0x84ff].
      Non-prefetchable 64 bit memory at 0x9065000 [0x90653ff].
      Non-prefetchable 64 bit memory at 0x9062000 [0x9063fff].
