> In your Grub menu.lst file, there are some lines that look like this one:
> initrd /initrd.img-2.6.26-2-686
> You need a line like that just below the item for the kernel you're
> trying to boot, except that you want the initrd version to match the
> new kernel version.
> initrd stands for Initial RAM Disk. It's a compressed archive that
> contains the contents of a small initial root filesystem, with just
> enough in it to to load the modules you're going to need to mount your
> root filesystem. In particular it needs to have the modules for your
> lvm and any RAID controllers.
> I've never made an initrd on Debian, but on Fedora the command is mkinitrd.
