If you can boot from SRM, then you can use aboot to load the initrd image.
Otherwise I'm afraid you'll have to try to get MILO 2.2 to work if you
want to load the initrd image.

It's probably a better idea to use your old .config file or even the
2.2 kernel's .config file as a starting point since the generic kernel
is just that, generic.
