Do you have any error messages? What happens when you try to load the
SCSI support. If no modules are loaded, you really should be seeing in
the syslog something to the effect of "Module xxxx could not be loaded".
While I don't have modular SCSI on any of my systems, I do have module
support compiled for SCSI cdroms, and generic SCSI access, and these seem
to work smoothly. I'm truly surprised that autoloading of ethernet
modules fails - again, can we see some clips of the syslog? Also, can we
see a copy of your /etc/conf.modules (or modules.conf, which ever one you
use). These will be helpful in tracking down your problems.

Looks like you're up to date, WRT the packages.
