Just to add to the confusion. Scanners should work just fine with
BIOS-Less SCSI. I've run Epson GT series scanners off Adaptec AV150x
cards under Linux frequently in the past. The 150x cards are ISA, and do
not have a BIOS. The BIOS is handy for Hard drives/other devices that
need to boot, but are not required to get the scanner to work. I
honestly don't think this is your problem.
Question is, does RedHat 9 actually SEE the scsi card? To find out, have
a look through your boot messages and check whether it picks up the card.
