Not to be a smartass, but I suspect you've left out a few details.  For
example, is this an MCA or ISA machine?  If it's MCA, you'll need to
roll a new kernel for the boot disk that includes the IBM SCSI HBA

The boot kernel does include MCA by default, but doesn't include that
particular SCSI HBA - I'm not sure why.  If you have a Model 90, this is
probably the problem.

If you need an MCA/IBM SCSI kernel for a boot disk, let me know, and 
I'll send you mine.
