Actually, the menu system does not yet support loading of the scsi
modules.
However, if you have these modules present on your image, you can load
them manually, as follows:

1. Press Control-Alt-F2 , and then RETURN to get a shell prompt.
2. Load the needed module:
     modprobe aic7xxx
3. Press Control-Alt-F1 to get back to the menu system.
4. When asked to chose a disk, chose OTHER
5. Enter the disc's name. As the udpcast bootdisk uses devfs, you need
to enter the "long" name, such as:
 /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/disc  for the whole disc,
or
 /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/part6 for just one partition
