The lanaid disks have IBMDOS on them and will boot on their own.  However,

This is interesting.  ls /lib/modules/2.0.32/net and see if there is an
ibmtr.o in there.  There _should_ be -- at least there is with my RH5.0

tell you that kernel-modules-2.0.32-2 is installed (or at least some rev
of moudles).  If not, make sure that you install the kernel modules rpm.
