Err, no. initrd22.gz is meant for 2.2 kernels (hence the 22 in the
name). Currently, macs are the only machines that still need 2.2 for
some models, but that doesn't mean we actually need those in any remote
sort of way.

Since Alex is trying to run 2.6, initrd22.gz is of no use to him.

Alex: I'm afraid that, at this point, many macs just don't run anything
more recent than 2.2 yet. If you want it fixed, you'll either have to
help out and fix it yourself, or wait until someone else gets it done

How difficult/easy is it to fix it myself ?
I know the C language.
I don't know assembler at all.
I own the book "Understanding the Linux Kernel"
(http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/understandlk/) and I have started reading it.

Thank you,
