Modifying Red Hat Linux 5.4 ISO image

Hi All,
Due to my limited knowledge on the updation procedure os ISO images, please excuse me if I am getting anything wrong.

Basically I am trying to add a new driver[megasr] into the ISO image, hence performed the following :

1. Mounted the RHEl5.4 ISO image
2. Copied the initrd.img to a temporary directory, performed changes to add the new driver in the modules.cgs, updated the corresponding files and recreated the modules.cgz file
module-info modules.alias modules.cgz modules.dep pci.ids
3. Copied back the newly created initrd.img file into the isolinux folder.

I tried to burn the ISO and install it, but it seems that the new driver does not get loaded. I am unaware of any other changes??

Appreciate your help.
