When booting the archlinux 0.7.1 image loading the scsi by default (SATA drives / MSI K7N2 mainboard ) most of the modules produce the error message shown below.

For example
modprobe scsi_mod

produces error message like
insmod: cannot insert 'lib/modules/2.6.15/kernel/drivers/scsi/scsi_mod.ko' : File exists (-1): File exists
modprobe: failed to load

Other modules work fine, like
modprobe raid1

When booting arch-noscsi and loading the scsi modules with modprobe sd_mod etc. it recognizes the devices and all mobprobe commands work fine.
This task depends upon

I guess for -scsi, these modules are built static in the kernel. The modules you're trying to load are for the -noscsi kernel, which means you get conflicts. Since the modules are already loaded, this shouldn't affect your system.

But I get error messages for other modules like sata_nv which are needed to load for my network card. Otherwise I do not get my network card online. When I run the -noscsi option and load all necessary modules manually, everything is fine.

is there still a -noscsi kernel on recent install disks?

is this still valid with new 0.8 alpha isos?
