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?
