I kinda stuck onto this.

I am tring to load sata_sil.ko. It loads perfectly but in dmesg doesn't show
some new scsi devices. I got just the message "libata version 1.02
loaded." and thats all.
Do I have to recompile the kernel with config_broken or something else?

Linux kcore 2.6.4-54.5-smp #1 SMP Fri May 7 21:30:47 UTC 2004 i686 i686 i386
GNU/Linux

SuSE 9.1 the latest stock kernel from online update.
