Thanks for the quick reply. I should have mentioned the SCSI card:
Adaptec AIC-7800 Ultra/Ultra with BIOS v1.26s6 Dell 06s6
I have no idea how to tell if 2.1 includes support for it. Since
it's at least three years old, I thought it would.
I should probably order 2.2 from somebody, CheapBytes? Is there
any way to download images of the Debian CD's from somewhere? I've
only seen packages.

I don't either, if that's the problem. The 2.1 CD I have is a publisher's
version which may be incomplete.
