Not wanting to sound like a stuck record but Slackware is probably the way to go. Being the oldest distro around it seems to have learnt a thing or too along the way. The install CD has at least 4 kernels to boot off on install, each for a different setup. Keymap selection works as does partition setup (partition creation has to be done with fdisk but it sounds like you've allready done this).

 A small fairly new distro is allways going to have problems with oscure setups (sadly SCSI = obscure) so it's usually better to go for one of the more well established distros.

If you can read this you've gone too far.
