I don't know about this, I have an SATA drive as my primary/only linux
drive, and I can boot linux fine without need an initrd. I don't know
if I'm using libata or not ( I think so, is that what the 2.6 SATA
drivers are based on? ) but I compile the drivers into my kernel and
that seems to work fine. I don't know about usb however, but I would
think that it would be the same way.
