centos kernel upgrade problem (raid driver)

I have recently installed CentOS 5 on my machine, with raid1 on a Highpoint 2300 controller.

Highpoint has drivers on their site, from where I downloaded the necessary files to create a driver disk, needed during installation.

I was able to load de drivers in setup, created lvm for my sda (double sata disk - raid1 by highpoint controller) and installed with no problem.

When I try to 'yum upgrade -y' the kernel installs, bue i cannot startup centos with it. I also tried to install an openvz kernel with no sucess. I followed highpoint tips on installing to an existing kernel, but had no success.

I always get kernel panic and volumes not found during boot...

In my driver disk, I have a rr3210_00.ko driver that highpoint mentions I need to:
1 - copy to /lib/modules/<kernel version>/kernel/drivers/scsi
2 - depmod -a <kernel version>
3 - echo “modprobe rr2310_00” > /etc/init.d/hptdriver
4 - chmod 755 /etc/init.d/hptdriver
5 - ln –sf /etc/init.d/hptdriver /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S01hptdriver
6 - ln –sf /etc/init.d/hptdriver /etc/rc.d/rc4.d/S01hptdriver
7 - ln –sf /etc/init.d/hptdriver /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S01hptdriver

i've done this, but the problem remains...

I don't know what i should try to do...If anyone has any ideas, please suggest...

I have also tried creating a new initrimg. here is the output generated by my attempt of getting the openvz kernel working...but it still doesn't. any help appreciated.

the driver is rr2310_00 an is there.

does anyone have a clue?

please, even if it's a stupid idea, there is no problem to suggest. the worst that could happen is me needing to reinstall centos.
since it's not working, that's no problem...
