how to add driver module to initrd ?
If you find module is available. type modprobe -v <module name>
run lsmod to see it is loaded. New modules appears on the top. Make a
ramdisk so that it appear in next boot. Copy kernel and initrd in some
place, if something goes wrong put it back in grup.conf file.
See man page for mkinitd to make ram disk.
