IP-Config before RAMDISK

 Hi am trying to load a network card driver module(e1000) from an
 initrd and  then configure it at boot time from a DHCP server.

 The problem is that the IP-Config bit happens before the RAMDISK is loaded
 and executed as shown in the dmesg extract below.

 Surfing around I have found other peoples dmesg output that has the
 RAMDISK load before the before the IP-Config. Does anyone know how
 to change this order or is it a kernel version thing. I am on 2.2.16.
