You seem to be equating initrd to modular kernel.  I have the drivers for
my present hardware compiled in, but I can add modules if I want to.  What
do I need initrd for?

Have I started a flame war? die flames die!

seriously though, in my situation, its not unusual for me to swap hardrives around to different boxes. I guess that makes me a prime candidate for initrd.
