The problem was with Sonnet's card firmware I think, not the SIIG/Acard one. They have since issued new firmware or drivers or something.
If it works in OS X and not OS 9 then it sounds like a driver issue. Remember the Mac loads it's driver off the disk, and OS X by default doesn't install an OS 9 driver. From past experience with a disk driver gone bad, that's exactly what happened to me (grey screen, no activity) but by booting off a CD I was able to install a new driver on it with Drive Setup.
Lemme see if I can find an article...
Hmm, well, here's a link to the Mac PDF manual where they mention to repartition/reformat the drive, but um, I dunno
You might want to try googling around yourself and see if something pops up.
I'd love to see you succeed, this charging 2-4x what the card costs on the PC crap has got to end.
edit: here's a link to some guys talking about the same thing:
