Is this a Symbios card or a card that just uses the Symbios chipset?

In any case, the driver you want is NCR53C8xx.  I think you have the
same card I do -- mine is a Symbios with the 53c875 chipset.

The same kernel or a different one?

You may need to check to see if the root= line in /etc/lilo.conf is
properly set to your SCSI boot device.   If not, it could be trying to 
boot from an IDE device or something.  Also, if you have multiple SCSI 
controllers, it may be probing them in an order you didn't expect.
