Hmm. If you have any suggested reading on initrd I'd love to see it
(URLS and such). I note there's an initrd HOWTO which I haven't read
Again, my priority is initrd insofar as it widens our base of
installable systems. I figured our targets would be the RaidTools
stuff and PCMCIA/floppy or PCMCIA/cd systems. Clearly that means the
initrd for boot-floppies, right?
Which initrd would be useful to you, as the kernel maintainer?
