After installing RH 9.0 and installing rawhide's
mkinitrd and moduitls rpm's as well as non kernel
updates from "",
I still have a problem with USB.

Note: after updating the mkinitrd and modutils, the
generate-modprobe.conf must automatically run and did
run because it was created in /etc/modprobe.conf. I
did not have to generate it manually.

I have 2.4.20-8, 2.4.20-18.9 boot jsut fine with the
updated mkinitrd and modutils but I still have
problems with kernel 2.5.75-mm1 and 2.6.0-test1-mm2.

I have also attached my modules.conf and modprobe,conf
and my rc.sysinit, so maybe you can tell me what I
need to do to fix this
issue for 2.5.xx and 2.6.xx kernels.

One thing I knwo for sure is that in 2.5.xx and 2.6.xx
kernels there is no usb-uhci.o driver. I believe they
changes the name and I wonder if this is why I am
having problems booting the 2.5.xx and 2.6.xx serieis

During the INIT:

Initializing USB Controller (usb_uhci): FATAL: Module
usb_uhci not found [Failed]
