With kernels later than kernel-2.6.23-0.142.rc3.git10.fc8 my machine fails to 
boot because the initrd does not contain modules for both disk controllers.  
Rerunning mkinitrd --with=ata_piix makes it boot again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anything later than kernel-2.6.23-0.142.rc3.git10.fc8

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum -y update kernel
2.reboot
3.

Does mkinitrd -v give any useful information?

Comment 2 Jay Fenlason 2007-09-12 17:20:33 EDT
Fixed with later kernels, like 2.6.23-0.174.rc6.fc8
