add aic7xxx to INITRD_MODULES in /etc/rc.config.
Run SuSEconfig and mk_initrd (and lilo) just to make sure.

If that doesn't work when you reboot, try the old one instead.

The problem isn't as grave as I thought. Since this machine used an
Adaptec
SCSI adapter card, the issue is that when the kernel boots, it is
attempting
to load the module "aic7xxx" and can't find it. I looked in the
/lib/modules/linux-2.4.4-4GB/drivers/scsi directory and see that there
is an
aic7xxx driver there, one called aic7xxx_old, and another called
aic7xxx/aic7xxx. So, where do one of these need to be placed so that
kernel
finds it when loading?
