Description of problem:
I do not use any Kernel modules on one of my machines and wanted to
remove the modutils package. Obviously it wasn't that simple.
I have created a patch so that rc.sysinit, at least, runs smoothly
without the modutils being installed... wondered if you were
interested in this with the possibility of merging it into the main
source tree. I have been careful to code making as few changes as
possible and not changing any existing behaviour.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build a kernel with no modules and no module facilities
3. Watch the boot messages...
Email me if you want the patch
Feel free to attach the patch to bugzilla.

patches initscripts-7.42 to remove dependency on modular kernel
Sorry for the delay, I wanted to test thoroughly and refine the patch a little.
This should be generally better in FC3 - I'm not seeing cases in a quick glance
where errors would be triggered. Please try there.
