Hi Jim,

Here are some notes from my research and analysis that you should start
reviewing:

- --> Flashing the controller BIOS.
The string "LSI Logic / Symbios Logic 53c895 (rev 1)" in your boot log
is coming straight from the board. LSI Logic was formerly called
Symbios Logic and this board was produced under both names. From the
website: "... The BIOS and the flash utility are located at the LSI
Logic web site in the Download Center under Support."

I'm not sure this will fix your install problems, but '98 to now is
quite a long time in computer years. And this definitely is a "rev 1"
board. My assessment would be to use the most mature and field-tested
code, which requires flashing the BIOS.
