You must install all the relevant RPMs for your installed kernel.
(Which, according to my educated guess, is the problem you neglected to describe precisely)

[root@blade2-2 ~]# rpm -qa |grep -i kern
kernel-2.6.9-42.EL
glibc-kernheaders-2.4-9.1.98.EL
kernel-utils-2.4-13.1.83
kernel-devel-2.6.9-42.EL
kernel-smp-devel-2.6.9-42.EL
kernel-smp-2.6.9-42.EL

Though, I must ask why this driver is
a) not included in the default install anyway (with QLAFAILOVER=1) - admittedly not entirely HPs fault.
or
b) why at not at least a driver-disk is provided?

It's pain to install a SAN-booting blade like this.

(Yes, I know that SAN-booting is not supported with RHEL4 - but without SAN-boot, blades absolutely suck.)
