My system is: LFS 5.1-pre, kernel 2.6.5 from debian (debian configuration),
reiserfs for the root device

I have read (carefully) the initrd hint and i have some problem:

1. if i use the gzip compressed initrd the kernel can't read it

2. the cramfs option of the script mkinitrd don't exist

3. if i append root=/dev/hda1 the kernel don't read the initrd, if i append
root=/dev/ram0 the kernel don't find init

reiserfs and ext2 are compiled in kernel, almost all other things are

Can anyone help me?
