Did you try to set the variable INITRD_MODULES in /etc/sysconfig/kernel to include the drivers you need in the correct order. be careful, since autoyast also has an idea what should be there, e.g. INITRD_MODULES="scsi_mod sd_mod aic7xxx reiserfs"
Hope that helps, Andreas

we face a problem where we have to load kernelmodules in a specific order to get our scsi devices recognized correctly! we are doing an autoyastinstallation via pxe. we send with the append parameter in the pxe-config file the modules to load, that works. our scsi device are recognized in the correct order. in the autoyast.xml we are partitioning the scsi devices and write the bootloader to /dev/sda. the stuff from disk 1 is transfered to the installed system. after the first initial boot, the order we have with the append parameter in the pxe-config file no longer works, autoyast has build its own initrd for the initial boot and with that the devices are changing because of loading the adapterdrivers in the wrong order!
how can we arrange that our wanted order of devices also works after the initial boot. so that /dev/sda remains /dev/sda and not switches to /dev/sdb
thanks for an answer. helge.
