custom initrd.img, not loading modules



I've been making custom initrd.img's for RHEL3 ever since its release. The 
only change I am making is a small change to "loader", I am not adding any 
new modules, etc.  The piece of code I am changing is in loader.c:

checkForHardDrives(&kd, &flags);


I comment out that line.. I do this because when loader runs there may not 
be any hdd's available because I setup the hardware array config via a 
script right before anaconda is launched.  If I don't comment it out, the 
kickstart will fail.

That being said, it has worked for RHEL3, QU1, & QU2, but for QU3 it isn't 
working.  The console shows me that it detected the controller but is 
unable to load/find the module for it..  Which I don't understand, I'm not 
even messing with the modules.  I'm using the same exact process that I've 
been using all along, unzip the initrd.img, mounting it, adding the file, 
unmount, gzip it, and putting in the isolinux directory. 

Below are what I think are relevant syslog entries to my problem.

Thanks for any help.
