Hello Mika,

thanks for your answer.

I have done a

update-iniramfs -c -t -k 2.6.28-grml

After that i started the kernel with this initrd from dos (i allways start  
from dos with linld097.com.

The kernel loads and stand than in the initramfs. I did not hear any  
output from my apollo synthesizer (boot-option speakup_synth=apollo).

I have unpacked the initrd.img-2.6.28-grml and looked for the speakup- 
modules, but he modules are not in the initrd.img-2.6.28-grml.

On the system the modules are in /lib/modules/2.6.28-grml/extra/speakup/

How can i add this modules?

Unpacking with

gzip -dc initrd.img-2.6.28-grml | cpio -i

copy the extra folder into the 2.6.28-grml directory and then

find . | cpio -o -H newc | gzip -9 >initrd.img-2.6.28-grml

will produce a new initrd, but speakup will not work and the system will  
not boot.

How can i do a depmode for the not running kernel 2.6.28-grml?

thanks for your help.
