I thought Ijust saw something from Bill Hawes cross the list that
addressed that, actually. Regardless, they've got at least a week to
get 2.1.x playing nicely with initrds before I'll get a chance to use
it on the Indy. The initrd stuff is the trivial part, and should
operate identically to having it mounted via NFS-root.
Thanks for the warning, though.
