SCSI boot without initrd

I have compliled my kernel to include the scsi drivers for my system which include scsi_mod.o, sd_mod.o , BusLogic.o and also the file system modules jbd.o & ext3.o. If I attempt a boot without an initrd the kernel is unable to mount the root file system.

If I create an initrd with mkinitrd which upon examination does not include any drivers, the system boots from the scsi disk. I obviously don't know enough about the boot process.

Can anyone help?
