Actually, I found some info on the web finallly...

It says to kludge until you can make a real kernel, at the CLI screen
Erisa 12

However, that still not working, and I found we had 3 SCSI cards in
addition to the onboard card...  So I'm still playing...

Did you configure anything on the visual screen?  What?
Can you try removing the 2910 card if you aren't using it?
