13 hmm, this is very strange .. afther bnooting with loadlin yesterday i got
14 the message
15 that kernel is trying to get read access beyond the ramdisk limits .. so it
16 can't find
17 init :( this could be a problem with loadlin, but i don't think so ...
19 did you check it with a scsi system ?? i can uncompress the initrd and mount
20 it on my
21 working gentoo box, so i don't think my download is corrupt ...
23 cya
