Boy, I hope you're still around to play with things :)
Can you try the sym-2 driver in recent (2.4.16+ kernels?).  I've been
doing some quick testing of my machine, and things seem OK so far.

BTW, the sym53c8xx driver won't do the 810 or 825 chipsets, iirc.  The
53c7,8xx driver needs a bit of work (it's still got an hold hack for PPC
that I _think_ can just go, but I'm not sure...).  The sym-2 driver does
all 8xx chipsets and some of the newer 10xx chipsets.
