Hello Fred,

thank you for improving my script so much!
By the time I wrote the script, there was also a ps3-script in
scripts/init-premount but it seems to be gone now, so it can be removed
from the pre-requisites.
The blacklist script writes modules blacklisted at the boot-prompt to
/etc/modprobe.d/initramfs. I think it should be executed before
configuring network.
I'd really like to test the script with my setup, but I don't think I
will get a chance to do so during the next week as I'm using it at
school which is closed during holidays.
