I did not have to do a "scsi" on the startup command line on our SCSI
RAID servers they were fine installing Fedora. Maybe because they boot
on SCSI ???
 
Anyone set me straight on this area ?
    
If the scsi module was not previously loaded then the initrd did not
know how to configure the new adapters.   Using scsi on the kernel line
told it to load the scsi modules.

The servers that had scsi installed when the OS was installed already
'knew' about the modules needed.  A server that did not already have
scsi installed would not automatically load the module so you had to
tell the kernel scsi was needed.

To fix that you need to make sure the scsi module is loaded either from
the kernel line or from a line in modprobe.conf for now. A kernel update
done after the scsi module is active should put it into the initrd image
and should automatically handle that afterward.

  
Thanks for the explanation.

Does that mean if I install Fedora using 'linux scsi' then it will use an initrd with scsi drivers installed in the image ?

        I have two SCSI cards but neither seems to be working. They
        both seem to hang startup after UDEV, hanging for more than 5
        minutes.
         
        They are an Adaptec AHA2920 and a BusLogic ???
         
        Any help welcome,
