Hi All,

I understand kernel compiles pretty well, but I guess I'm having a hard
time nailing down my hardware even though I "know" what it is.

It panics when trying to mount the root device.  Its something to do
with the scsi/raid kernel config.

I can't actually attach these since its too big so here are so links to 
my relevant info.

kernel config

kernel config (most drivers)

generic config

dell parts list

/var/log/messages (boot with verbose logging into generic)

Thanks in advance.

GENERIC kernel:
