Help with mkinitrd


I'm trying to make an initrd file for my kernel (fedora core 3) with the command

Code:
mkinitrd  /boot/initrd-2.6.11 2.6.11
but I keep getting the error

Code:
No dep file found for kernel 2.6.11
Anyone have any ideas what this could be?

I have tried running
Code:
make dep
but it says

Code:
*** Warning: make dep is unnecessary now.

I may be wrong, but I believe "make dep" isn't necessary on 2.6 kernels.

Ok I figured it out.

Just needed to run
Code:
depmod 2.6.11
which created the file
Code:
/lib/modules/2.6.ll/modules.dep
