 I've had to fight with Debian's initrds for 2.4 openMosix kernels (for the
3w-9xxx modules...)  I wrote a shell script that mounts the cramfs image,
makes an ext2 filesystem in an 8MB file, mounts it, cp -a, and fixes some
things up.

 You might do the same thing (manually).

 I think Linux knows not to load a module when it's already compiled in.
(Probably just because of symbol errors.)
