It depends on what the error is. If this is loaded as a module, you'll
also need to make sure an initial ramdisk (mkinitrd) is specified in
lilo.conf (or whichever boot loader). If you want scsi on root
filesystem, I'd strongly recommend compiling it directly into the
kernel, rather than as a module.
