I know how initrd works; I use one for booting my ultra 60 with
raid+lvm.  However, my SS5 _will not boot_ a 2.4 kernel that has initrd
_support_ compiled in, regardless of whether I specify an initrd image
in silo.conf.  Doesn't make much sense to me, but there it is.  In
this case it's no big deal; I just boot with a 2.4 kernel which
doesn't support initrd.
