Does this mean it won't boot on a machine with SCSI?  Or that you've 
only tried it on a box with IDE drives?

I think you'll have better luck in getting a helpful answer if you 
describe your system (is it "the one we are discussing" or a 
different one??) in a bit more detail...  (The standard kernels 
should handle a lot of different SCSI adapters, including the 2940.)
