That's easy :-)
Thanks for your answer!

I was looking for the initrd.gz in the installation medium. I found two:
/install.386/gtk/initrd.gz and /install.386/initrd.gz

They aren't the same.
Why are there two versions of them?
Is it ok to take this one: /install.386/initrd.gz?

Ok, now I have a file called initrd. But I don't know what to do with it.

I found this page:
http://kernel-handbook.alioth.debian.org/ch-initrd.html

Chapter 6.4 Examining the initrd contents tells me to:
mount -t cramfs /boot/initrd.img-2.6.12-1-686 /mnt/initrd -o loop

So I took my gunzipped file and tried to mount it into a directory. But I 
get the message that it's a wrong fs type.

What am I doing wrong?


Best regards
Ramon
