i just updated a SLES 11 Server running on ESX to SP1.

originally the server was running on*pa*e. the update
installed aditionally*default* for some reason.
the fatal thing is it mkinitrd was not able to locate all needed
modules for
-WARNING: no dependencies for kernel module 'ata_generic' found.-
and to complete the mess made this the default kernel so the server did
not come up again.

2 Questions
* Why does zypper update install additionally a different kernel pae /=
* Why is ata_generic module not shipped with default kernel
