are you wanting to make an "initrd"???

man mkinitrd

most people don't need to do this...

Well how can I do it?

Very hard or can I use it?

no it's not very hard. but i'm not sure that you would need an initrd. i dont know your os, so i can't comment on it's specific kernels. please read the man page for "mkinitrd", it explains it better than i can.....

but basically you make this little ram disk type thing, then you need to reference it in your lilo.conf (or menu.lst if using grub).

google is your friend...
