There are many kernels when it comes to SCSI cards for slackware. Have you only tried SCSI.S?

There are quite a few you should try.

For example, scsi2.s and scsi3.s

ibmmca.s might work too

I found that adaptec.s works for a few non-adaptec cards as well.

Please see http://slackware.com/install/bootdisk.php for more info
