SCSI card

I'm going to install an Adaptec SCSI card (1520) for using
an HP scanner under Linux.
It's not clear to me if the only thing I have to do for properly
installing the SCSI controller is to recompile the kernel to
include the SCSI support, or if I have to do any other operation.

I've read the SCSI How-to, but it seems not to say much.

Thank you in advance,

You can include a module for your SCSI card (with insmod command), but is better to recompile your kernel with support for it.
