Broken Kernel since 2.6.15 - More Info

This is what I see when I boot.

Booting 'Fedora Core (2.6.15-1.2054_FC5)'

With kernel 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5 the message is pretty much the same except

A couple of people have suggested running mkinitrd and I have upgraded it
and created new initrd file and it does the same thing.

When I boot from the installation DVD in linux rescue mode it load sata_via
And everything is fine.  Just can't boot off the SATA drive.

Just think I am going to have to figure out how to make a boot cdrom and
load the drivers from it.
Only other thing I can think of doing is building kernel with libata and
sata_via as part of the kernel.
Mkinitrd -v says it is loading about 5 modules and looks like it should

Subject: Broken Kernel since 2.6.15

I was running FC4 and I was running fine until the kernel-2.6.16.
I kept my older kernel-2.6.15 and 2.6.14 which worked just fine.
The newer kernels can't seem to find my SATA disks.

I received an email saying:

>Thank you.

I decided to upgrade to FC5 since it still had a kernel-2.6.15.
Now my system won't boot.
I also tried the latest kernel-2.6.17, same thing.
I feel like fedora has pulled the plug on my system.

The funny thing is that I can boot from the DVD and go into rescue mode and
it finds the drive just fine.

So my question is what do I have to do to make a cdrom that I can boot from
and find my disk and load everything else from disk?

I tried a grub floppy, and that worked, but only for the kernels that worked
without it.  So it didn't buy me anything.

So I think the cdrom has to have the kernel on it.
