Using an initrd works fine for me, you probably just forgot to put udev
in it.

My initrd basicly looks like this:
/dev/console
/dev/null
/bin/busybox
/bin/udevd
/lib/udev/firmware.sh
/lib/udev/udev.conf
/lib/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules
/firmware/ql2200_fw.bin
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.dep
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla2xxx.ko
/linuxrc

The script I used to create it is available @
http://porno-bullen.de/~bluebird/initrd-qla2xxx/ but don't blame me if
it doesn't work ;)

Cheers,
bluebird
