Thanks.  I know I should have put this in with my original
question....but.... where do I put the aic7xxx line?  The closest
thing that I found in /etc was in modeprobe.conf which now looks like

alias eth0 3c59x
alias eth1 tulip
alias scsi_hostadapter BusLogic
alias snd-card-0 snd-cmipci
options snd-card-0 index=0
install snd-cmipci /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-cmipci &&
/usr/sbin/alsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
remove snd-cmipci { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; };
/sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-cmipci
alias usb-controller uhci-hcd

Do I change BusLogic in the "alias scsi_hostadapter"  line to
"Adaptec"?  Does that trigger picking up the right module?  Or do I
change it to "aic7xxx"?

Thanks again,
