When the BIOS comes up on the machine, does the CD show up on the IDE
controller or the SCSI controller?  Does the BIOS even see the Adaptec?

The RH9 CDs should absolutely recognize any Adaptec SCSI controller with
the 78xx or 79xx chipset.  The floppy should also, if you used the 
bootdisk.img file to create it.
