have you tried just adding "rootdelay=<seconds>" on the kenrel command
No I haven't ! Thanks a lot for the tip, I didn't know about this
kernel parameter. I'll try it at once, I knew my use of initrd was a
vast overkill... OTOH now that I know something about initrd's I might
revert to a stock 2.6.8 kernel with a custom initrd !
I have two remaining problems with my firewire drive:
* sometimes after my laptop wakes from sleep, the connection to the HD
seems lost (no access to root filesystem anymore :( ). I haven't
investigated this yet as it's my first installation of linux on a laptop
(and on ppc)
* The kernel doesn't see the firewire HD when I power on the computer,
only when I reboot it (but Open Firmware does see it in both cases).
This really puzzles me...
