your report didn't contain enough information of how
initramfs-tools could have failed.
anyway latest initramfs-tools in unstable now handles lilo
and should work much better if timeouts were the trouble.
so please retest with latest initramfs-tools 0.56 and udev 0.087-2
from unstable, report back or may have soon to close your report.
My bug was about udev or initrd tools not clearing the initrd image or
displaying a BIG warning that the user need to rebuild the initrd when
he choose another initrd tools.
For example if I switch from initramfs-tools to yaird, nothing will tell
me that I have to rebuild the initrd image before rebooting.
The fact that udev/initramfs-tools didn't work was another story. And I
am sorry, but I can't retest this soon.
IIRC there was missing udev script in the initrd image and sometimes
udev failed to get /dev/console (or something like that).
