you need to configure the kernel or at least the module to get build. You need something like aha152x.ko in 
'/lib/modules/2.6.8-gentoo-r4/kernel/drivers/scsi' directory. 

If it is an ISA card, make sure you switched on ISA support in the kernel.

As before: the kernel module hasn't been build or is not include in the kernel. Ckeck your kernel config, (re-)compile and it should work. Have alook at the special documentation /usr/src/KERNEL/Documentation/scsi/aha152x.txt.
