The answer to this depends on which distribution you are using, or what the specific task is, or what the target machine is. We need MORE details about what you are doing. A common distribution will provide a command to rebuild an initrd so the task you probably seek is how to customize it. I have built initrds in many different ways, most using the tools the distribution provides. I have even built my own custom build systems for my work making embedded systems, and USB memory stick based rescue systems.

You can use "mkinitrd" command to create custom initrd image. For more details checkout on Google Uncle.
