I've also just noticed that you are using "--preload=<module>" when
the man page actually says "--preload <module>" - try dropping the =
signs. Having checked though, RHEL4 (which can't be far off FC5)
doesn't care if you have an equals sign or not - most commands accept
both.

My best suggestion would be to drop the preload stuff and see if
mkinitrd works with just:

# mkinitrd /boot/initrd_usb.img 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5

Then try adding in your preload stuff - at least that will tell you if
mkinitrd is functional!
