Your kernel is NOT detecting your SCSI card.

You need to load the module - either by modifying /etc/modules.conf, or by
manually using insmod to load the correct module.

I suspect the SCSI card you're using does not have an onboard BIOS, which
means without the correct module being loaded you'll never get it to work.

Look in /var/log/boot.msg for something like this

E800/3F, IRQ

note the scsi1 :  bit - yours will most likely read scsi0 : because I use
scsi emulation on one of my IDE devices for cd-writing.

If you can't find anything like this, then you need to go module hunting.

Good luck.
