the appropriate Maintenance Web article but before
creating the initial RAM disk with 'mk_initrd'.
rpm -Fvh modutils.rpm
rpm -Fvh pcmcia.rpm

Now build the initial RAM disk and reboot:
mk_initrd

You may wish to give local users a grace time to log out before reboot by substituting 'now' with an appropriate amount of time, i.e. '+10' for ten minutes grace time.
