initrd hosed during new kernel install


I'm trying to upgrade the 2.4.10mdk kernel in Mandrake 9.2 to the new 2.6 kernel and have hit a hurdle.

I noticed that there were 2 initrd files :

initrd-2.4.10.mdk.img
and
initrd.img

I think the initrd.img might have had an extension other than img...

The 2 files before I went through the upgrade to the 2.6 kernel were 600K in size. After, there was only initrd-2.6.0.img, and it was only 72K. Now, linux won't load. As soon as I make a choice from lilo, the screen just goes black. I did make a MandrakeMove CD, so I can at least access my linux drive. Any ideas?

Maybe this should be in linux-software. I just posted this same thread over there. Admin, could you kill this please?
