    Now rebooted, with this command line to the kernel:
    Kernel command line: ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb
    dm-mod.major=238 dm.major=238 selinux=0
    Unknown boot option `dm-mod.major=238': ignoring
    Unknown boot option `dm.major=238': ignoring

    So its still at FE00h/65024d.

    And I fixed the underscore to a dash in my modprobe.conf, now I'll do
    another mkinitrd & reboot again.

    Cheers, Gene
