[Useful information snipped].  The one thing you are missing is a
detailed description of the symptoms.  "can't get RH7.1-xfs to boot"
does not tell us much, we need to know how far it gets and what the
last messages are.  Does LILO boot, does lilo load a kernel, does the
kernel issue any messages, does the kernel see the SCSI controller etc.?
Boot problems have many different causes, without details everybody
would just be guessing.
