They still showed the file, it wasn't forgotten as the previous reply stated
it would be. For some reason, it did finally go ahead and get through the
installation. Not sure what file needed it's head examined.

Well, I'm not sure and I don't have the time to dig, but I would guess the
version of initramfs-tools that was installed tried to run regardless of
whether it needed to or not.
