Indeed.
Some time ago though somebody posted about ipx and appletalk .o
modules being probed for thus displaying errors on the console
if not built. My rc.sysinit now contains this:

[snip]

# Clear mtab
>/etc/mtab

# Enter root into mtab.
mount -f /

# OK, now create a symlink for the modules area
ln -snf /lib/modules/`uname -r` /lib/modules/current

#
# This should be finally fixed. Until I need IPX or Appletalk ;)
#
if [ ! -r /lib/modules/current/modules.dep ]
then
echo "Creating module dependencies"
/bin/mv -f /etc/modules.conf /etc/modules.conf.old
/sbin/depmod -a
/sbin/modprobe -c | /usr/bin/awk '{
if ($3 == "ipx" || $3 == "appletalk") print $1,$2,"off"
else print
}' > /etc/modules.conf
fi

# Attempt to load modules.
if [ -x /sbin/kerneld ]

[snip]

but I am not sure this is the intended way of doing things.
Has been working anyways every upgrade since 2.0.7... though
if anybody has a better idea please post it !

Cheers,
