-Creating an initrd is quite simple, and I will show two cases here, one in care you have a Reiser filesystem on your root partition, and the second for the case you have an ext3 filesystem. I assume a 2.6.37.6 kernel in these example commands, if your new kernel is different, change the version number as appropriate.+Creating an initrd is quite simple, and I will show two cases here, one in case you have a Reiser filesystem on your root partition, and the second for the case you have an ext3 filesystem.
