Honestly, I'd recommend just trying it out. Dracut right now is as usable as any non-initramfs solution out there and you can always add it as an extra non-default option in grub so that it doesn't mess you up if it doesn't work. I've found that dracut is pretty auto-magic by default and the config file doesn't generally need tampering. Most of the options are to NOT load modules or to minimize the initramfs size by figuring out what modules are actually needed and only load those (which means if you change hardware between boots it could come up short). The modules that are available are controlled by use flags. Actually, I think it is a DRACUT_MODULES variable or something like that (not unlike how X11 handles drivers). Rich
