Ahhh, that must've been it.  I switched my filesystems to ext3 a while back,
but have it compiled as a kernel module.

I prefer initrd as well.  It relieves the admin of having to track exactly
which drivers are required to boot the system and which modules those
drivers those recursively depend on, and adds a very minimal about of time
and storage to the build process.
