2.6 and scsi controller


Well I followed DrOzz's Newb guide on how to compile a kernel and everthing has gone smoothly up to creating the initrd file.When I use the mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.0 2.6.0 I get this error "No module sym53c8xx2 found for kernel 2.6.0".I've searched this board and google for a solution and I can't seem to find a solution.I'm using RedHat9 with the linux-2.4.20-8 currently,my boot loader is grub,and here is my hardware list.If Ive left out any important info please let me know.

Epox 8RDA3+
1gig corsair xms @ddr400
AMD (1800)@2.3ghz Stable
Aopen DVD 16X
GeForce 5900XT
Turtle Beach Santa Cruz

I must just be missing some thing I followed the articles listed but I gues I missed a step?Everything went smoothly untill it couldnt find sym53c8xx_2 under 2.6.0/drivers/scsi when I used the make command.I found that it was named sym53c8xx2 so I just renamed it sym53c8xx_2 and ran make again it ran fine.When I ran make install this is the error I get and its basicly the same error I was getting before "Kernel: arch/i386/boot/bzImage is ready
sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.0/arch/i386/boot/install.sh 2.6.0 arch/i386/boot/bzImage System.map ""
No module sym53c8xx_2 found for kernel 2.6.0
mkinitrd failed
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2"

Well back to google

Well after diging through google I still have yet to find a solution.I'm going to e-mail LSI and see if they have any info on 2.6.0 and their scsi cards.
