I have an IDE boot drive to Win '95.  I also have a 2GB drive on an AIC 7850 controller.  I have 2 partitions (240MB and 1 GB) on the 2 GB drive and a 3rd (500+ MB) awaiting Linux.  I can't see (i.e., the bootstrap message shows SCSI Host - 0) the SCSI adapter.  And of course, I cannot see the drive to partition it with fdisk.  I'm using the correct boot for AIC-78xx support.  BTW, I do see the controller and connected devices in DOS and Win '95.

I would check the following:

Your SCSI chain is terminated properly.  If this is an
external device you may need a SCSI terminator.  If this is an
internal device it may be as simple as a jumper.
