Hmm, what release do you use, it seems like w need to add sd[a-][0-]
You can use mknod to create the missing ones manually. You should copy the
kernel from the bootdisk (/dev/ram0)
to your systems /boot/boot/bzImage (backup the old one) because
scsi-support is only availabe in modules and we
have no initrd that preloads modules.
