I am also interesting boot with quick, but I thought that required an
non-initrd kernel. Thus, I thought, you could not use stock debian
kernels. Is it only 2.6 kernels that use initrd by default in Debian?
Or can quick handle initrd kernels? Or is there another way of doing it?

Note that I use Debian version 3.1
