looks like it's trying to load LSI mpt/fusion driver from the ramdisk.

gsyprf3:/usr/src/2.4.20# find -name mptbase\*
./drivers/message/fusion/mptbase.c
./drivers/message/fusion/mptbase.h
./drivers/message/fusion/mptbase.o
./include/linux/modules/mptbase.stamp
./include/linux/modules/mptbase.ver

Do you have an LSI FC or u320 controller installed or built-in?
Did the LSI EFI driver get loaded?
