Can not boot on system that requires pata_via

Description of problem:
Can not boot on system that requires pata_via.
It complains about missing /dev/root, drops me into an emergency shell, asking
for manual link creation. However, /dev does not contain the CD device.
This is probably related to bug 220470 and/or bug 218444.
The particular system requires the pata_via kernel module in order to access the
CD drive, which is not contained in the livecd-initramfs.img. Actually I don't
see any pata modules listed.
Should the LiveCD include more device driver kernel modules, in order to allow
booting from as many systems as possible?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 7 Test 1 LiveCD 2007-02-01
Whatever has caused the problem in test 1...
The Test 2 Live CD boots fine on my system.
Closing as WORKSFORME
Moving to 'devel' as discussed on
