Actually, there are three:
- the generic initramfs method for compiled in initrds
Is there any docs for this floating around outside of the blurb on the LMO wiki?
Doing a few tests with this, I was unable to get a kernel to see the ramdisk.
Despite there being an initramfs built into the kernel, there were no
"RAMDISK: Compressed ramdisk found at block 0" messages, or no "checking if
image is initramfs...it isn't (no cpio magic); looks like an initrd" messages
that I've commonly seen with built-in ramdisks.
I figure in the end, either the problem is PEBKAC, invalid kernel command line
params (root=/dev/ram0?), or broken code.
