I work with a lot of Symbios cards, and a couple Athlons. I can help you
get the right driver and bios, but I haven't seen your error messages, so
I don't know if I can help with them ...

Could you tell me what the actual chip name is? ( written on the chip on
your SCSI card in the form:
Symbios Logic c1995

(I really only need the 53C number))

and, is there a board name (bigger white type on the circuit board:
examples are SYM8751D or SYM8951U)

Also, on the versions of the bios I work with (SDMS V4.0), the last line
of the bios header says PCI-4.18.00. Does your bios have a version number
