Bug#292221: d-i: mkinitrd STILL omits medley.o (see also #265424)

Ok, I said it was simple: 

--- /target/usr/sbin/mkinitrd.old	2005-01-23 18:38:08.000000000 +0000
+++ /target/usr/sbin/mkinitrd		2005-01-30 22:44:55.000000000 +0000

  		echo hptraid
  		echo pdcraid
+		echo medley
  		echo floppy

Please note that this only closes one part of #265424. The following issues
still need to be addressed (hence I have NOT reassigned this bug to
initrd-tools or closed it): 

1. "detect and mount CD-ROM" stage fails in non-expert mode on Asus A7N8X
Deluxe (total freeze) - in expert mode the correct selections are ide-core,
siimage, amd74xx, ide-detect, ide-disk, cdrom, ide-cd, isofs
2. ataraid.o, medley.o, hptraid.o and pdcraid.o not offered during "detect
hardware" stage in expert mode (medley needs to be manually modprobed in
3. partitioning stage offers three very dangerous options (erase entire
array, erase entire disk0, erase entire disk1) without showing existing
4. I needed to apt-install initrd-tools manually and edit
/target/usr/sbin/mkinitrd after installing the base system but before
installing the kernel image - it would be good if the "install kernel image"
stage was a separate item on the main menu in expert mode to facilitate this
(then people would not have to reinstall the base system every time this
kind of problem occurred)
5. the A7N8X has two Ethernet ports - 3c59x and forcedeth - on reboot the
network did not work because eth0 was assumed to be the forcedeth port and
in fact my LAN uses the 3c59x port
6. There still seems to be no way of installing to a fakeraid array using a
2.6 kernel!

Method: Installed from daily CD build 25/01/05
Machine: ASUS A7N8X Deluxe 2.0

Anyway, I'm up and running now, so if anyone else posts with medley
