kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2

2) When I boot I see these messages:
Code:

kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_hostadapter, errno = 2
 

What are these?
 

Well, obviously "kmod" thinks it needs the "scsi_hostadaptar.o" kernel module, but you haven't compiled it. The message is not harmful, but to make it go away you would have to dig into "kmod", find out why it think it needs scsi and convince it otherwise. Alternatively, you can compile the needed module if you really do need scsi (probably for cd-burning, as I understand it).

modprobe isn't in the initrd.  The initrd script loads the drivers it needs.  It's a harmless error message that you can ignore - it affects nothing. this was a bug in redhat old version but i think it must have got fixed in latest Redhat.
