This was at boot time, from the Red Hat 7.2 distribution floppies.
I'll try it again and note what it says.

I'll also try installing a clean 2.2.19 and applying the 6.2.4 driver patch
to it, and build it as an alternative boot kernel.

I still don't understand why 5.1.31 is the latest driver that works...

In the meantime, here are the details of my SCSI subsystem:
