It's SCSI. I didn't see anything in the list for support of LSI controllers, though, so I tried the scisnet.s, which is supposed to load support for all available scsi controllers, plus full ethernet. I could not get that to load, however.

I'll look for some other possibilities there as well, though I'm not very confident in my ability to find the right kernel, as I am new to Linux installation and administration

is it possible that you had a typing error when trying to load scsinet.s?

try again w/ scsi.s and or scsinet.s and be careful of the typing. (the typing has bit me in the arse more than once). one other note, i didn't see anything for lsi controllers listed , but, i did see a kernel w/ Symbios support, which i believe is corresponding to your scsi, the numbers don't match, but, a ray of hope.
got to go for the night, will check on you tommorrow.
good luck.

Thanks, Peace. I appreciate your help. I was very frustrated, however, and have already begun installing Mandrake. I really didn't want to do that, but being new to Linux and all, it's probably a good place to start. The only problem is that I have to deploy a major web-server on the box, so I'm just hoping that Mandrake can do the job.

mandrake like most linux distros(maybe all distros), comes w/ the apache web server. be sure to check firewall settings as to allow port 80 to be open. don't be discouraged about running mandrake, it's where i started, and, after all it is still linux and not windows.
good luck.
