Just a guess (I use Grub, but not initrd), but it may have to do with
how you have the initrd files named. The following is from the
update-grub man page:

"It will also add initrd lines for ramdisk images found with
the same version as  kernels  found.  e.g.  /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.5  and  
/boot/initrd-2.4.5 will cause a line of "initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.5 or
simliar to be added for the kernel entry in the menu.lst."
