Nice. Did you diverge much from the document or pretty much followed it

I might as well point out some of the things that I think might make sense to 
in that document.

In the "Background" after "This HOWTO explains"

"To use firmware iSCSI initiator, such as IBM's blade support (called 'iSCSI 
support), or the Intel NICs firmware (in the PCI-E cards) consult the vendor's 

To help you out here is the link to the IBM one which has nice screenshots:
(sorry about only pointing out the IBM one - that is the only one I've found
so far).

In the "initrd" part you have:
iscsistart -i "$ISCSI_I" -t "$ISCSI_T" -g 1 -a $ISCSI_A

which works fine on the IET targets but might fail on EqualLogic which can give 
the target group portal number of 1001. The latest version has auto-logic (Mike
please correct me if that hasn't gotten in?) to figure this out. Either way it 
might make sense to say that the -g is optional, or make sure you know what the 
value is
from running "iscsiadm -m session" and looking at the value after the port:

tcp: [1],1001
