Linux does let you load drivers for devices that you don't have, but
they generally won't do much of anything.
I might run 'lspci' to see if the Adaptec adapter is at least showing
up that far. If it did, though, I imagine Kudzu would have tried
something. 'lspci -v' will provide additional useful information.
