Well, I'm not sure how to check that. After booting with the
2.4 kernel, the output from lsmod doesn't seem to mention anything
related to RAID/SCSI.

How can I tell which driver it's using?

Are the RAID and SCSI drivers separate?

(I'm guessing you mean after booting with linux26 here.)
How can I tell which driver I'm supposed to modprobe?
I'm looking in /lib/modules/2.6.8-2-386/kernel, and it looks
like there's some scsi drivers in there:


but I don't see anything about RAID anywhere.

How, in general, are we supposed to know the name of the driver
we want to load given the chipset name? Is there a utility that
can ask a driver which hardware it supports? Is there some central
search utility which we tell it our chipset and it directs us to
the driver we're looking for?
