Re: Adding drivers to kickstart initrd.img

hi All
I am doing software raid on Redhat AS4 with SATA drives. I am using GRUB Both disks are bootable i checked it out one by one n system boots from any one installed disk. Prb is when i add new disk and run this script

echo Please, new Drive for Drive 1 enter /dev/sda and for 2 Drive enter /dev/sdb
read DRIVE
echo "Drive is  $DRIVE"
if [ $DRIVE = "/dev/sdb" ];then
{/sbin/sfdisk -d /dev/sda > $DRIVE.out
/sbin/sfdisk $DRIVE < $DRIVE.out}
{/sbin/sfdisk -d /dev/sdb > $DRIVE.out
/sbin/sfdisk $DRIVE < $DRIVE.out}
/sbin/mdadm /dev/md0 --add ${DRIVE}6
/sbin/mdadm /dev/md1 --add ${DRIVE}2
/sbin/mdadm /dev/md2 --add ${DRIVE}8
/sbin/mdadm /dev/md3 --add ${DRIVE}5
/sbin/mdadm /dev/md4 --add ${DRIVE}3
/sbin/mdadm /dev/md5 --add ${DRIVE}7
/sbin/mdadm /dev/md6 --add ${DRIVE}1

it add the second disk in my case and add all the new disk with same partitions as we have with old raid and Raid is then resync too. i make /boot as raid , / , /usr , swap all are raid md's . Now when i boot from 2 disk it wont boot . what to do any idea . iTs really urgrent to do . Your help is highly appriciated.

You're right of course.  The network route is the correct way to go in
many cases.

My way is still kind of useful if you need a network driver disk and
so you can't get it over the network...  Etc.  I have a bunch of
configs like that so I eventually end up patching anaconda for each
new redhat release.

Plus the subject was about putting the drivers in the initrd and I was
trying to spread some anaconda-recompiling-joy.  ;P
