I learned from somebody who developped in the kernel that it is a good
thing to recompile the kernel with all the SCSI stuff built-in (not as
modules), this could increase the performance. I don't have enough
knowlegde at this level to understand why. Perharps someone here have
some explanation about this ?

By this way, you won't have this message anymore during bootup.

> Yes.  modprobe isn't in the initrd.  The initrd script loads the drivers it
