You can use "auto" (Bzzt: Herbert Xu dropped support for auto and will
probably try to make everyone believe that you do not use this, you
don't need this and it is generaly a-bad-idea though ext2/ext3 developer
recommend to do so and thoug I provided a patch to detect the filesystem).

You can, but you should not.

It is commint from fsck which tryies to run fsck.ext3,ext2. You could
make a symlink, but it is ugly, ugly, ugly.

Btw, if you don't have cramfs in the kernel, and forgot to remove the
initrd line from the boot-loaders config, the kernel will break on
mounting initrd and stop with a "cannot mount root" message. Something
you should probably mention explicitely in the mkinitrd docs.
