    Yes. You need to load aic7xxx.o, the SCSI driver. in /etc/modules.conf
    you need:

    alias scsi_hostadapter scsi_mod
    alias scsi_hostadapter sd_mod
    alias scsi_hostadapter aic7xxx

    alias block-major-8 sd_mod
    alias block-major-11 sr_mod
    alias char-major-9 st

    That should get your SCSI stuff running including tape and CDROM.
