I guess all I'm missing out on is dynamic module loading, but im not too
bothered about that right now. All I had to do was modify /etc/inittab to
use the right devices, and bing! all working.

my bootscript loads all the modules I want, and sets up permissions for
their device nodes.

works for me :)

PS. I had to modify /etc/lilo.conf too :)
