Unhappy Installing Advansys SCSI Adapter Model ABP-510 - Point in right direction?

Hey all!

I am wondering if anyone would be able to provide me with some direction in how to my ABP-510 ISA SCSI card installed under linux. I have searched the internet high and low for maybe some step by step instructions, but have had no luck. I have however found some information on the subject.
I have been able to download the DOS card utility used to change port, dma, irq, scsi id, and dma speed settings on the card. I have also found switch diagrams for the two switches on the card, but nothing on how to specifically (ie what port settings to use etc...) set it up.

I am currently using the 2.2.19 Linux kernal w/ the driver (advansys.c) being compiled as a loadable module. Whenever I attempt to load the module I receive the following error:

/lib/modules/2.2.19/scsi/advansys.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
/lib/modules/2.2.19/scsi/advansys.o: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.2.19/scsi/advansys.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.2.19/scsi/advansys.o failed
/lib/modules/2.2.19/scsi/advansys.o: insmod advansys failed

after using the following command "modprobe advansys.o". SCSI support is compiled into the kernal.

I was thinking it might be something with IRQ or PORT settings so I attempted to use the loadable module arguments to tell the module how the card is set up.
I receive the following error:

advansys.o: invalid parameter parm_asc_ioport

after using the command "insmod advansys.o asc_iopflags=1 asc_ioport=0x110"

Below are the settings the DOS utility read from the card:

Port: 0x110
IRQ: 12
DMA: 6
DMA Speed: 5MB

Note: This is the only SCSI adapter installed in the machine along with 2 network adapters.

Also, I am using the SCSI adapter for an HP SureStore Tape 5000 SCSI tape drive that I want to use for backing up the server.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you in advance!
