I don't know which kernel you are using, but in the newer version of
SuSE conf.modules is only a symlink to modules.conf, which is the
right file for you!
As far as I know it, 3Com cards have a problem with IRQs other than
10, so try to reconfigure your SCSI card (jumper etc.)
initrd doesn't help you is this case because the 3c509 module is
loaded after the SCSI card Bios...
