How can I find the modules names ?! 
If I cat /proc/modules the scsi line is:

Scsi_mod 119313 3 BusLogic,sr_mod,sd_mod, Live -0xd096c000

SCSI drivers are not compiled into the kernel, they're modules that must
be added to initrd, and loaded by nash.

mkinitrd reads /etc/modules.conf, and picks off the module names that
get aliased to scsi_hostadapter*, then adds them to the initrd image.

What you need to do is to identify which kernel module supports your
SCSI controller, temporary append "alias scsi_hostadapter <MODULE>" to
your /etc/modules.conf, and run mkinitrd.  You should be able to use the
resulting initrd image to boot off a SCSI hard drive.
