Try running "modprobe qla2xxx" once you boot up onto the 2.6.15
kernel. Then run dmesg to see if has detected your hardware. If not,
you can try upgrading to the 2.6.16 kernel in sid and trying the same.
I don't know the status of booting *from* fibre channel, as I'm aware of
past problems with getting the driver loaded in time. Specifically,
the qla2xxx driver didn't discover devices until after its
initialization routine had returned.
