hey I found and used the mkinitrd and just went ahead and told it what
to use.... like --preload=scsi_mod --preload=sd_mod
and I now I get it to boot.

Fantastic!

Excellent. Yeah, that last email of yours was the clue, that it wasn't
seeing the card at all... and that would only happen if there was no
driver there.

When we upgrade systems using rsync, which I've done a lot of, our wiki
notes that if it's not the same hardware, boot to rescue, so the correct
drivers are loaded, the chroot, and the rebuild.

Good luck.
