It might be a good idea to compile the diskdrivers for the root fs into the 
kernel instead of modules.
That's what I do anyways, because I keep forgetting to either (re)create 
the initial ramdisk image.

The tg3 is not an alias. It tells the os which driver it needs to load to 
get a eth0 interface. Modules.conf justs lists what driver you need.


It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
