You should in general use "modprobe" to load modules rather than
"insmod", to make sure that any dependent modules are loaded first.

Plausible, I guess. Not sure how to achieve it - do you have a system
which boots from the hard drive, or from floppy, or what?
You should load modules in this order:
scsi_mod - base SCSI utilities
megaraid - PERC/Si
aic7xxx - onboard SCSI
sd_mod - SCSI disks
sr_mod - SCSI CD-ROMS
... hope this helps.
