You need to boot with "aic7xxx=verbose" for the driver to output
data that will help me track down your problem.  My first guess
is an interrupt routing problem, but verbose messages will allow
me to tell for sure.

>>SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
>>scsi0 : Adaptec AIC7XXX EISA/VLB/PCI SCSI HBA DRIVER, Rev 6.2.1

The latest is 6.2.3, but I don't believe there are any fixes since
6.2.1 that will help your particular problem.
