Ok, then it had nothing to do with the athlon-kernel. I was wondering why the 
initrd existed on the other boxes with athlon-kernels. In these two machines 
we are using hardware-raid-controller which are - as I understood it 
correctly - loaded into the ramdisk, right?

I did it with YaST and deleted the initrd-sections. Now it works fine. Thank 
you for your help. I didn't know that initrd is not needed on that box.

Thanks.
