Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

there is a file in the initrd called linuxrc that dictates which drivers should be loaded ( and in what order). It's just a shell script.
I moved the modprobe for the aic card above the modprobe dor the ncr card and voila, I get sda1 to be the drive on the AIC controller. Which is exactly what I wanted.
The tricky part was getting inside the initrd.
I "reverse engineered the creation of the initrd by examining /sbin/mkinitrd which is just a sheel script that automates the creation of an initrd.
So i had to unzip the file and mount it via loopback dev but once I had /sbin/mkinitrd in front of me it was just a step by step process.
