Heh. Then it's kind of logical that i don't find any package ;)

It's indeed mentioned that you don't need one for a single machine.
Anyway, even if you do use an initrd, you can do it without cramfs

There you have to change the MKINITRD but i'm not sure what
you can put in place of the mkcramfs there.
