Damn.  That's a damn good point.  I didn't think of that.

What I was thinking of hacking up was 

  (a) if modules.tgz *does* contain unix.o, then plop it on the
      rootdisk (of course, this scheme has the problems you mention,
      making the root disk also tied to the kernel, which is ok, but
      not a great idea)

  (b) after booting, in /etc/init.d/rcS, if 
      /lib/modules/`uname  -r`/misc/unix.o exists, load it

I dunno.  Herbert, any ideas?
