This from one of my PE2450 servers (perc2/dc controller)

[seth at lsintra seth]$ cat /etc/modules.conf
alias scsi_hostadapter aic7xxx
alias scsi_hostadapter1 megaraid
alias eth0 eepro100
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc

So in your case it should look like this.
alias scsi_hostadapter aacraid

Then rebuild your initrd image.
mkinitrd (see help)

I always compile the scsi adapters that I need to access the root 
filesystem into the kernel so I don't need to make initial ramdisk images.

It also makes sure I can reach the root fs when something goes wrong.


It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
