None needed, my description was rather cryptic ...
Step by step:

**	Decide if you want to go ahead with this test.
	Only try this if you know how to recover from a non-booting kernel
	(& if I'm correct you've just done that)

**	Save the attached patch.

**	Make backup:
	$ cp /usr/lib/yaird/perl/Hardware.pm just-in-case.pm

**	Apply patch:
	$ sudo patch /usr/lib/yaird/perl/Hardware.pm < /dat/tmp/Hardware.pm.patch
	patching file /usr/lib/yaird/perl/Hardware.pm
	Hunk #1 succeeded at 216 (offset -18 lines).

	(the offset is a normal warning in this case)

**	Comment out any work-arounds (MODULE ide-generic) you may have made
	in /etc/yaird/Default.cfg

	This is an important bit: you would not want to report success with
	the patch if actually your edit in Default.cfg is what makes the system boot.

**	Use the patched version to make a new initrd.img.
	A quick way to do this is 

	$ sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.14-2-686-smp

	but only if you don't actually have an SMP system.  This should
	leave your normal single-cpu kernel in place and install an smp
	kernel, with new initrd.img, next to it.

**	reboot into new kernel; report success; undo if you don't like the
