Well dmesg | grep scsi gives me:

scsi0:	 sym53c8xx-1.7.1-20000726
scsi1: 	MESH
scsi : 2 hosts
Detected scsi disk sda at scsi0, chabbel 0, id 0, lin 0
scsi : detected 1 SCSI generic 1 SCSI disk total

And ofpath /dev/sda2 gives
ofpath: Driver sym53c8xx is not supported

I don't know what I am supposed to be looking for under that proc interface 
though :)
