yeah, other kernels do not have this problem, I followed the README file, in 
point 5) To rebuild a kernel with a modified config...

I think, after that I just only ran depmod -a and mkinitrd without 
parameters, and then it was working, this is the way I usually use.
also mkinitrd on sles10sp1 does not know about the -v parameter, and then it 
did not liked the --with paramters too:

mkinitrd -v -f --with=aacraid --with=sd_mod --with=scsi_mod 
initrd-2.6.16-xen.img 2.6.16-xen
Unknown option: -v
Try mkinitrd -h
srv4:/usr/local/src/dist # 
mkinitrd -f --with=aacraid --with=sd_mod --with=scsi_mod 
initrd-2.6.16-xen.img 2.6.16-xen
Unknown option: --
Try mkinitrd -h

these versions are installed:
