Subject: [gentoo-amd64] 2005.1 installcd mini can't be used as rescue cd ?

Hi there

This might be just something stupid I'm missing but here it goes: 
after installing "another" OS these days I needed the usual trick to 
boot my gentoo hdd partition from a gentoo x86_64 cd kernel and run 
grub-install (the "other" OS overwrittes the MBR at installation).

As usual I try to boot a mini x86_64 gentoo installcd like:
gentoo-nofb root=/dev/hda2 noinitrd

This works well with 2005.0 (and the older images I have tried, even 
when I was running x86) but does not with 2005.1. It seems to ignore 
"noinitrd" parameter and still load it and continue the normal cd 
booting sequence instead of mounting my hdd partition as root after the 
kernel boot :(

Any hints ?
