Dunno, but you can always take the easy option and disable kudzu.
I don't know about you, but I never add new hardware, so I don't
need something to check for it every time I boot the box up.
I disabled it with a real bodge; I changed /etc/rc.d/init.d/kudzu
as per (NB this is for RH 7.1 but RH9 should be similar) :
case "$1" in
action "Updating /etc/fstab" /usr/sbin/updfstab
exit 0 # trog
echo -n $"Checking for new hardware"
