You mention Fedora initrd. I would stick with vanilla
kernel materials to work with this. Alain provides
tools to generate kernel images and initrd files
besides cast-o-matic. Have you looked at that? There
is no need to mknod device files these days since
udev and 2.6 kernels dynamically generate /dev contents
as required by drivers.
Perhaps the challenge is, how do you get the LSI logic card
working with something other than Fedora? Did the hardware
vendor only supply a binary module or do you see it supported
in the latest vanilla Linux kernels?

I tried to create an initrd from the Fedora I have installed on one of the
nodes. The problem is then that not all modules are loaded at boot and, once
I load then by hand and see the scsi disk on /proc, I have no idea of how to
attach it at /dev
Shouldn't this be automatic? Or should I mknod the device?
I know this is not too specific to udpcast, but I've been out of the linux
world for sometime and am a bit lost here. Google wasn't very helpful
Thanks in advance for any suggestion/help/hint/pointer.
