I just tested a very carefully made initial ramdisk, and it fails:
My lilo.conf has for this image:
This fails, though it succeeds all the way up until root filesystem
mount is attempted. I'm a bit frustrated by the lack of good debug
information when a root filesystem mount fails :( For example, I wish it
would say which modules were loaded at the time of failure.
