the normal procedure for the kernel, if
an initrd is found is to execute linuxrc
from it and then proceed to mount the root filesystem from the device given in the kernel command line at boot time, and then run /sbin/init from the actual rootfs. there is generally no need to run any special commands for mounting the actual root from the initrd.

Thanks a lot.
are you referring to a shell script you have named as init in the initrd. if so, can you post its contents here so that we can have some idea of what goes on after loading the initrd and then work from there.
