It sounds like you are trying to boot for the very first time with
the vanille kernel image, but this doesn't work because it tries
to load the SCSI disk module before the root filesystem is
mounted. This doesn't make sense, as SCSI support is built-in to
the vanilla kernel, and it shouldn't be trying to mount the
harddrive as your root filesystem anyway.
I must be misinterpreting something.
