More Qlogic driver madness.

This is really getting silly. How is it possible that an initrd will

initrd and initramfs and I'm still stuck. Are there tools included
with Fedora that let me edit/muck initramfs settings? Or do I have to
roll my own?
I just don't get it, between FC6 2.6.20 and 2.6.22 kernels in FC6 this
capability was broken and no one's complained? I'm really very
tempted to file a bug report on this for F8 and hope it gets fixed
that way, since I'm unable to find an answer.
Try something like,
1. Add your qlogic entries to your /etc/modprobe.conf (so that step 3
below will include and load the drivers)
2. Backup your current initrd image
mv /boot/initrd-$(uname -r).img mv /boot/initrd-$(uname -r).img-OLD
3. Create a new initrd
mkinitrd -v /boot/initrd-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
If the card has a newer firmware version than the driver, it should not
use the driver version - normally.
Question: Why the need to build your own - they are included in Fedora,
ls -la /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/scsi/qla*
