I installed unstable udev, added esp, sd_mod, and sr_mod to
/etc/mkinitramfs/modules, and tried to reboot. Same problem as before
on 2.6.15, esp module is not present in initramfs so root can't be
loaded. However, 2.6.12 no longer boots, (apparently not compatable
with new udev) so system is now boat anchor.
