Sorry, I am not understanding you here. Could you spell it
out please? My root filesystem is on the ps2esdi disk, do
I need to set up an initrd, and load the ps2esdi driver as
a module? Or do you mean that I should change things to
have module_init call it even when it isn't built as a
module? Or something else?
