kernel image for slackware 9.1 install

I am installing Slackware 9.1 on two VA Linux servers. The SCSI controller is LSI 53c876e. I cannot seem to figure out which kernel to choose at the beginning of the install.

I looks as though I should use the (sym538xx.s) or (scsinet.s) - but neither of those seem to be available on the install disks. I have looked in the kernels directory and the bootdisks directory. I have also searched online to see if I could download them anywhere. I do not find either kernel for slackware 9.1

I did this once before with some help a few months ago on the same type of server, but I can't remember what we used to boot with so it will see the scsi drive - so I can re-partition the drive before continuing the install.

Thanks for any direction.
