I spaced on pasting that rather important part of the problem.  The error 
comes when attempting to start:

 /etc/init.d/open-iscsi start
 * Starting iSCSI initiator service 
 * Error: InitiatorName file /etc/iscsi/initiatorname.iscsi is missing!
 * The iSCSI driver has not been correctly installed and cannot start.

Thanks again!  It's much appreciated.
