I don't know whether I am supposed to ssend this to any of you or the
general list.
I have been using -test9 and -test10 for a while and noticed that the
modules for my connected USB printer and scanner did not load
automatically during boot (as they do in kernel-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl
(Fedorea-SC1) or other versions of 2.4.22). 
The alternatives were to enter 
sudo modprobe usbpr
sudo modprobe scanner
or to compile the drivers into the kernel (which I ultimately did). 
I could not figure out the correct format for the new /etc/modprobe.conf
to remedy this; I also compiled the soundcard-driver into the kernel
since the test9 kernel.

Before demand loading can work you need to put the path to the module
loader program in /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe (from memory). Yes, that
makes booting a portable kernel using initrd more complex...
