the aic stuff can sometimes take a very long time to setup and run on 
the 2.6 kernel ( on your machine spec it might not come up at all! )

try booting the installer into debug mode, see how far it gets. 
Alternatively, disable the aic stuff completely  ( the kernel doc has 
the options )

Finally, try the CentOS-3 installer. some of these really old cards are 
better supported there.
