mkinitrd fails in fc5




Linux bootp 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5 #1 Tue Aug 8 15:30:55 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I cannot get   mkinitrd to work.  It only responds with the --help list,
seeming to say that my syntax is wrong.
I am attempting to include  usb-storage

I am running as root   from /root
 
[root bootp ~]# mkinitrd ­­preload=ehci-­hcd ­­preload=usb-­storage ­­preload=scsi_mod  ­­preload=sd_mod  /boot/initrd_usb.img    2.6.17-1.2174_FC5
usage: mkinitrd [--version] [--help] [-v] [-f] [--preload <module>]
       [--force-ide-probe] [--force-scsi-probe | --omit-scsi-modules]
       [--image-version] [--force-scsi-probe | --omit-raid-modules]
       [--with=<module>] [--force-lvm-probe | --omit-lvm-modules]
       [--builtin=<module>] [--omit-dmraid]
       [--fstab=<fstab>] [--nocompress] <initrd-image> <kernel-version>

       (ex: mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.2.5-15.img 2.2.5-15)
[root bootp ~]#

and no new  .img  in /boot:
[root bootp ~]# ls -l /boot/*img*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1058886 Aug 17  2006 /boot/initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.img
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1081430 Aug 21  2006 /boot/initrd-2.6.17-1.2174_FC5.img
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7006019 Dec 21  2006 /boot/initrd.img-2.6.15-26-386

my experience running mkinitrd is meager, but this just looks broken.
maybe fc5  is just too old?  I  saw lots of mkinitrd bugs "wont fix"   by googling.

but this lack of any response except the help pkg
tells me I am doing something basically wrong.
I get same result  using  \ to breakup the command into two lines


thanks for any help
Jack
