It's possible for a bad SCSI card to go unnoticed, though I'd think it 
somewhat unlikely given IBM's painstaking approach to POST.  Are you sure 
that the attached disk is good and has an OS on it?

Have you tried booting from an AIX CD and see what cfgmgr detects...?

I don't think any of the MCA RS/6000s had SMS, but some had service processors 
or neo-service processors, and I think some could probe a little hardware.  
Try digging up the service and user manuals for the G-series boxes from 
http://www.rs6000.ibm.com/ -> Library -> Hardware documentation.
