Strangely enough it *was* necessary regardingless the fact that
it was in arch/i386 defined (which I checked after the replys to my
mail).  Anyway it works now and I'm happy :).

Hmmm, are you sure for /dev/_h_db??  I thought it has to be an
/dev/sd? device in general /dev/sd?4 (if there are no SCSI discs
for example /dev/sda4).  I don't understand *why* it should be an
IDE disk and what would it help me if it works with sda4.

May be that was the necessary bit.  But does `dpkg -i kernel-image`
which I build using make-kpkg doesn't do this job?  This was the
reason why I left it out (it was the first time that I used
the kernel-package builder).

Kind regards
