i thought initrd solved that problem by allowing modules to be loaded into
a ram disk before the disk was accessible (because grub/lilo directly
support reading the initrd fiel from the disk).
am i wrong? in which case which modules have to be built in for initrd
to work? i had a similar problem when i first moved to 2.4 kernels and it
turned out to be a not recent enough modutils.
all i did was take the .config from kernel-image-2.4.14 copy it into the
new src tree of 2.4.16 and run "make oldconfig".
i *should* have everything i need, and i've confirmed via diff that it
doesn't look significantly different from my old 2.4.14 config file.
