KOTD download :



rpm -Uvh --nodeps hwinfo-11.0-2.i586.rpm
cd /lib
ln -s libhd.so.11 libhd.so.10
ln -s libhd.so.11.0 libhd.so.10.0

mkdir installed-rpm
mv hwinfo-11.0-2.i586.rpm installed-rpm

rpm -Uvh *.rpm

quote README.mkinitrd in the KOTD download directory:
"In addition, the IDE drivers have been modularized. If your root
filesystem is on an IDE disk, please update the mkinitrd package
so that the correct modules will be included in the initrd
automatically, or add ide-core and ide-disk to INITRD_MODULES in
/etc/sysconfig/kernel to add them manually. You will also have to
add the hardware-specific ide modules needed to access the root
device to INITRD_MODULES by hand. To obtain the list, check which
device your root filesystem is on in /sys/proc//device, run
hwinfo --storage'' and enter the module name(s) under Driver
Activation Cmd'' for the respective device."

added "ide-core ide-disk" to INITRD_MODULES in /etc/sysconfig/kernel
the hardware-specific ide module I needed is "sis5513", it was already in

after reboot to runlevel 3 the network and usb system didn't work
added "8139too" to INITRD_MODULES for my network card
added "uhci_hcd ohci_hcd" to INITRD_MODULES for the usb system
added "usbnet" to INITRD_MODULES to make the kernel recognize my Zaurus5600

after reboot again to runlevel 3 the network and usb system worked

recompiled NVidia driver

init 5 or reboot

everything works fine smile.gif
