I have a suse 10.0 and i loaded kernel module for my Promise Ultra100 TX2 - ATA 100 Controller and now i get kernel panic. So i removed that card, now i want to remove that module and make again mkinitrd. How do i remove that module (i know the name of it) ?

rmmod <module-name> will remove the module. I don't know that it is necessary to make a new initrd. Examine /etc/sysconfig/kernel. If the module is listed there, delete or comment it out, then make a new initrd.
