by default are all part of the kernel rpm. If the drivers that were
deleted were part of the original installation then you'd need to
rpm -Uvh kernelfilename.rpm
which should replace any files that are part of the kernel rpm and were deleted.

reason, they, by default, load both the NIC and the iSCSI driver (for
QLogic initiators, I think the drivers are qla3xxx and qla4xxx).
The simple fix is to just remove the NIC driver from
/etc/modprobe.conf and rebuild the initrd, removing the NIC driver so
it doesn't load at boot time.
