Sorry for not replying earlier, I got confused by your partition
numbers (I had thought they could not exceed 15 - my thought was
wrong), and missed your reference to modules.
As you say, for everyone not using an initrd, the filesystem for
'/' has to be compiled in. You have now compiled in ext2, but a
recent distro will usually use ext3.
