in fact as I read it - I also attempted the following:

1.  Load modules "manually" and then start iscsistart - it starts
[EMAIL PROTECTED] module]# insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.14.el5/kernel/
insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.14.el5/kernel/
drivers/scsi/scsi_mod.ko': -1 File exists
[EMAIL PROTECTED] module]# lsmod | grep scsi
scsi_mod              186361  4 sg,usb_storage,libata,sd_mod
[EMAIL PROTECTED] module]# lsmod | grep sd_mod
sd_mod                 56257  4
scsi_mod              186361  4 sg,usb_storage,libata,sd_mod
[EMAIL PROTECTED] module]# insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.14.el5/kernel/
[EMAIL PROTECTED] module]# insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.14.el5/kernel/
[EMAIL PROTECTED] module]# insmod /lib/modules/2.6.18-53.1.14.el5/kernel/

2.  Run iscsistart:

iscsistart -i -t iqn. -g 1 -a
iscsistart: transport class version 2.0-724. iscsid version 2.0-865
iscsistart: version 2.0-865
iscsistart: connection1:0 is operational now


I'd like to find out if anyone has successfully performed the above by
inserting into an init script for initrd - for the purpose of booting
a diskless server on an iscsi-root?
Having gotten the above to work, I attempted to modify my init script
so that I can boot to my iscsi target's root FS;  sadly, I get an
error when loading the first iscsi module:

"insmod: error inserting '/lib/scsi_transport_iscsi.ko' -1 operation
not permitted.  module signed with unknown public key - signature key
id fa719cfd42d5150 ver=3"

Any thoughts?  I'm wondering if I de-select the module-signature-
verification option in my Centos 5.1 kernel (via make menuconfig) if
it would address this issue.

Pls let me know if my current issue is not applicable to this list, or
if I should go an post in CentOS at this point?

thanks again in advance,
