so the san disk is the boot device? or an secondary disk?

what is the full listing of lsmod, qla2200_conf is not the fiber card
driver (per se), it gives you the ability to do some configuring of the

so this looks like you are using the qlogicfc module. i dont think the
qla2200* modules are compatible with the qlogicfc module. how did you
get the qla2000 modules?

we are using san disks as boot devices in our environment and what i did
was make modules from the qla2x00-source and then create an initrd image
to load those modules:

$ lsmod | grep qla
qla2200               281188   2  (autoclean)
qla2200_conf          300828   0  (autoclean)

$ cat /etc/mkinitrd/modules
