Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Sounds like you're on the right track tcaptian.... if the correst module is present, then (in theory) it should be loaded automatically upon inserting the card/connecting the device. You can look through /etc/pcmcia/scsi, /etc/pcmcia/scsi.opts for any potential clues on how these types of devices are treated.
I've recently been reading alot on the topic of PCMCIA use in Linux. (though I don't have any SCSI devices myself)
Here's some well-written documentation to help
The Adaptec APA-460 SlimSCSI adapter is not supported. This card was originally sold under the Trantor name, and when Adaptec merged with Trantor, they continued to sell the Trantor card with an Adaptec label. The APA-460 is not compatible with any existing Linux driver. I'm not sure how hard it would be to write a driver; I don't think anyone has been able to obtain the technical information from Adaptec.
