Unable to install RH 6.1 as install asks for a driver disk

module is not included on CDROM(s).

The error message that I think you are referring to "path is NULL" is not a bad
thing.  This is just a debug statement telling us whether the module was loaded
from the installer or from a boot disk.  Reopen this bug if you are still having
problems.  You should be able to continue with the installation from the point
you talk about above.  The CDROM activates, so that should indicate that the
SCSI adapter is recognized by the system.
