I don't know the details about that controller, but you
should be able to boot the Centos install CD with
linux rescue
at the boot prompt and see what it loads.  Follow the
instructions to 'chroot /mnt/sysinstall' when it tells
you to.  Then if you missed the 'loading ...' during
bootup you can probably find the module name with
'lsmod'.  Add  a line like:
alias scsi_hostadapter aic7xxx
to /etc/modprobe.conf but with the correct module for your
adapter. Then run /sbin/mkinitrd with path and kernel
version numbers to replace your existing on.
