The main problem with the initrd is that it is very difficult to build one 
that doesn't exactly match your existing system.

So if you have a running machine with one hard drive and you want to add 
another and make it use software RAID, or if you want to convert to devfs 
then things will be quite painful for you as the initrd will want to work in 
the old way.
