mkinitrd trouble



Hello all

I am pulling my hair trying to get Debian Woody to boot with an initrd
image.  I have compiled the kernel 2.4.18 with Loopback device support, RAM
disk support , 8192KB, and initrd (all compiled into the kernel).  I am able
to run mkinird just fine 'mkinird 2.4.18-12 -o /initrd-2.4.18-12.img'.  The
system boots just fine with the first entry in lilo (below) but when I
select 'Linux-initrd' the system is able to create the ramdrive:
RAMDISK: cramfs filesystem found at block0
RAMDISK: Loading 788 blocks [1 disk] into ram disk... done
Freeing initrd memory: 788k freed
Kernel panic:  VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 01:00


Here is a snippet of lilo.conf
default=Linux

image=/vmlinuz
        label=Linux
        read-only

image=/vmlinuz
        label=Linux-initrd
	initrd=/inird-2.4.18-12.img
	append="root=/dev/ram0"
#        read-only
#       restricted
#       alias=1


I'm sure there's some simple step that I'm missing and I sure would
appreciate any help.


Thanks,
Jim
