Unfortunately the server does not have a floppy drive. And interesting thing
that I've come across is at the point where it hangs on console 3 the

insmod /modules/aic79xx.ko
insmod: error inserting '/modules/aic79xx.ko': -1 No such device
insmod /modules/aic79xx-new.ko

Any Ideas?

SuSE 9.3 sometimes needs a floppy in the drive.
Try that.
