If you put the card in, the OS should detect it automatically and do the right 
thing for you.  You then want to rebuild your initrd so the SCSI module is 
loaded at startup.  However you are correct in that you want to use:

alias scsi_host_adapter aic7xxx

I'm guessing it's going to be the aic7xxx anyway.  To rebuild your ramdisk you 
can (At minimum):

mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img `uname -r`

When you install new kernels this will be done for you automatically.
