Breaking into a Linux box running initrd


The way I've always broken into a Linux box when it's been seriously 
broken or the root password's been forgotten is to go "linux init=/bin/sh" 
at the LILO prompt.

However, this doesn't appear to have the desired effect when you've got a 
system that boots with an initrd.

Can anyone enlighten me as to how you do it when there's an initrd in use?
