So you've taken the output of lsmod and built all these directly into the
kernel, not as modules?

I'm assuming it's an IDE drive so you'll need to make sure you have ATA
support built in, and then generic IDE support, then the ATA driver for your
Then you also need to ensure your file system is built into the kernel, i.e.

If it's on a PCI SATA card then you also need SCSI support, SCSI drives, and
SATA for your device built in.

Once it can see your drive it can mount root and then load whatever modules
you need, so you really just need ATA controller and file system built in.
