Adaptec SCSI card 39160 problem

Hi all,

I've RedHat Linux 7.1 installed on my computer and I'm trying to use the Adaptec SCSI card 39160. From the Adaptec website I can find the drivers for RH7.2, 7.3 and 8.0, but just not 7.1. They got a "Ultra 160 Drivers for Linux, version 6.2.4" patch for kernel 2.4.2-2, and my kernel is 2.4.2-2, so I gave it a try.

I installed the patch by

zcat linux-aic7xxx-6.2.4-2.4.2-2rh.patch.gz | patch -p1

and I recompiled the kernel with

make mrproper
make config
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
make install

and rebooted with the newly created boot image. However, the system halted after it said

Loading linux-2.4.2-2....................
Uncompressing Linux...... Ok, booting the kernel.

So did I miss anything? I don't even know if the driver for the SCSI card is a loadable kernel module or not. If it's a LKM, is its name aic7xxx.o? Any kind of pointer is appreciated, thanks!
