I can install Redhat 6.2 successfully (?), onto my IDE hard drive, from my IDE CDRom, but it does not recognize my Adaptec 1520 scsi controller.

I've tried adding the following to my /etc/conf.modules

alias scsi_hostadapter aha152x
options aha152x io=0x340 irq=11

no good. any tips?

check if in your kernel you have activated SCSI_SUPPORT=m, this is for loading scsi modules, after you compile your kernel do
make modules
make modules_install
and then try again your configuration of conf.modules
if doesn't works verify that you don't have irq problems or if that io and irq configurations fine

I would 'assume' the default RedHat kernel has this supported, as the older versions did.

as for the io & irq, that is what is flashed across the screen during bootup, and "cat  /proc/ioports" & "cat /proc/interrupts" show the io=0x340 & irq=11 are free and available.
