Hi Andri,
All three have to do with scsi. They are probably generated by lines in 
/etc/modules.conf but without knowing more about your hardware it's hard 
to know whether you can simply remove the lines or if they are real 
failures. (Something wrong in your kernel config perhaps) For more info 
have a look in /usr/src/linux-2.4.22/Documentation/devices.txt. The 
results of dmesg and lspci commands may be useful too. Kevin
