I think you have to upgrade your /etc/rc.d/rc.S script by upgrading sysvinit package, then cd /etc/rc.d; mv rc.S
After that, you can also remove the sys line in your /etc/fstab file because rc.S will mount /sys without the need of fstab.

I've installed sysvinit-2.84-i486-50.tgz and changed fstab, but /sys/bus/pci/drivers is still the same and the above mentioned modules are not being loaded

keefaz, I met someone once who said they didn't like the fstab method (he claims he has done some module work with linus t. in the past!), is sysvinit the only alternative or are there several ways of mounting your filesystems? Sorry to butt in on your thread superandrzej :~/

OK, I know what was wrong.

The hotplug-2003_08_05-noarch-3.tgz wasn't fully 2.6.X ready when I updated to hotplug-2004_01_05-noarch-3.tgz the modules that I mentioned before are automatically detected now.
I should have done it in first place but I was mislead by this "Slackware 9.1 is 2.6.X" statement and I wasn't updating packages.

thanks for the help guys.
