missing initrd


I'm woundering if a new "initrd.img" is automaticly created when you compile a new kernel? I've resently compiled the 2.6.9 kernel and I started to config grub when I relised I dont have an new initrd, so I cant get the new Debian system running. Have I missed some option when I compiled the kernel?

Did you compile it the "debian way" using its packaging setup? If so after you set up your .config do make-kpkg --initrd --revision=custom.1 kernel_image.
