have you tried the insmod command line option
eitherway on the command line or put it into the info file.

Hey, there --
This is an old issue, one that I've never managed to solve once and
I've got a set of machines with 2 SATA RAID controllers: an onboard
uses the sata_sil module; and a PCI controller that uses the 3w-9xxx
The BIOS detects the sata_sil drives first, and uses the MBR on the
first of them. It then detects the RAID 5 exported from the 3ware
SuSE detects the 3ware card first, and calls its RAID 5 /dev/sda; then
it loads the sata_sil driver and calls the two drives on it /dev/sdb
As the system needs to go onto the sata_sil drives, this ends up
problems when doing an autoinstall.
Ideally, I'd like to be able to force the installation system to load
the sata_sil driver _before_ the 3w-9xxx driver. Is there a way to do
this, maybe in the "append=" section of my pxelinux configuration?
As an alternative, I can modify the initrd (taken from the SuSE 10.0
/boot directory). There isn't an /etc/modules.conf file on there,
though, and linuxrc.config doesn't have anything about modules. If
there isn't a boot parameter that can be passed, anyone know what I
would need to change/add to the initrd to force the sata_sil module to
load before 3w-9xxx?
