Yeah, well, it is a a netboot initrd. I will try building the cdrom
initrd, as i am told it will actually work on prep, only chrp and
chrp-rs6k has the size of initrd constraint. Not sure though.

Yeah, but which errors ? can you look a bit more at this. That said,
those are hardly critical problems. You can go to console 2, and do a :

chroot /target, and an apt-get upgrade (or whatver) in it.

Yeah, that seems reasonable.

Actually, if you have a running system, you can build the image
yourself. Make sure you have the 2.4.25-3 kernel-build package installed
(just uploading it, so it will be there tomorrow), unpack it somewhere,
and move the vmlinux from the CD to the directory, and then launch the
build script in it with the initrd.gz from the CD as argument.

Then get the script in dest.

IF this boots well, then use it and report back, if not, you will see it
complaining about not finding the initrd.
