LSI20320 install on a Dell Poweredge 4400 running Windows 2000 Server

I have the a Dell Poweredge 4400 running on Windows 2000 Server, and I am trying to install an LSI Logic card LSI20320 which is a host bus adapter.  My problem is that when we started to install this card we loaded the driver, shut down the server, and then put the card in.  Now we get the lights on the card and the light indicating that there is something in the PCI slot, but when it comes up the card is not found as new hardware.  Is there something I am doing wrong?  Please help and thanks in advance.

Have you added any SCSI compents to the adapter? Typically when you install a SCSI adapter you should set the SCSI ID as 7 and terminiate the card. Try uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them. Instead of rebooting the machine, try shutting down the machine and let it sit for 20 seconds before you turn it back on.

We have added one SCSI component to the adapter and its SCSI ID is 4.  The actual adapter's SCSI ID is 7.  We terminated the card at the one SCSI component.  We tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, and shutting it down for 20 seconds to no avail.  Does it matter how the interrupts are set up on the PCI Bus?  I was looking at the troubleshooting on Dell's site and it says that the PCI slot with the adapter should be set to INTA.

I found that the LSI20320 SCSI adapter needs a PCI slot that is 133 mhz and the Dell only has at the highest a 66 mhz.  Thanks for the help.
