David,

Be assured, you do need both controllers.  It looks like your system is trying
to boot to a 2nd SCSI disk ( sd1 ) while it's configured to boot to the first.
s trying
to boot to a 2nd SCSI disk ( sd1 ) while it's configured to boot to the first.
Can you give more information about your system..ie: how many drives; how 
they're partitioned, etc.  If your kernel is on your second disk you can boot 
to it at the "boot": prompt by typing sd(1,a)/kernel.  You'll also have to
have   

 config		kernel root on sd1   

in your kernel config file. (if / is in fact on sd1) Are you able to boot
GENERIC ?  Need more information about your system configuration!
