Boot Errors


Code:
SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
I get that error when I boot up my computer. Any idea how to fix?

I have no idea what to do and what it is, except that it deals with scsi. I also have a feeling this is why my scsi emulation doesn't work. When I put 'append="hdd=scsi"' into my lilo.conf, run lilo, and reboot, it does nothing.

shouldnt it be 'append="hdd=ide-scsi"' , not 'append="hdd=scsi"' if youre doing scsi emulation?

Is 'scsi_hostadapter' important? I know blacklist will just not load it, but how important is 'scsi_hostadapter'?

'sd_mod' is not loaded, and when I tried 'modprobe sd_mod' it says it can't locate it. I did a search for 'sd_mod' and it found it in /usr/src/linux-2.4.29/drivers/scsi/sd_mod.o; which probably means it wasn't compiled into the kernel. Does anyone know where this option is exactly so I can reconfigure the kernel?

Sorry, that's what I meant to type, I have the 'append="hdd=ide-scsi" in my lilo.conf.

which kernel ? in 2.6 it is in
Device Drivers/SCSI device support/SCSI disk support
you may want to enable
SCSI CDROM support and SCSI generic support as well...
better is to compile them as module so they will be loaded
if only it is needed

Right now I'm using the 2.4 kernel. It's a lot of typing so here's a screenshot of what I think is what you're talking about. Everything looks like it's already enabled:
