Depends what you really need. If the kernel is just missing the RAID driver (i.e. driver is available, but hasn't been included in initrd), it's easy. Just add the driver to the initrd (gunzip ; mount -o loop ; add kernel module ; umount ; gzip). If the driver is buggy, or simply not available for that kernel, it'll be harder. Maybe you could simply try the kernel and initrd from SUSE 9.1 (if that has the correct hardware support). There's a good chance that the rest of YaST will be able to work with that.

I'm trying to set up a pxe environment to install SuSE 9.0 on some Dell Poweredge 1850s. The kernel that comes with 9.0 doesn't support the raid controllers. I want to change the installing kernel to 2.4.32 so that the raid works. I can get the systems booting and linuxrc runs but it asks for a module disk then goes into manual mode. In the manual mode I can kick off a ftp install but after root is downloaded the system just goes back to the linuxrc menu. Is there an easy way to change the kernel?
