initrd support for kernel version 2.4.22
I'm building a custom linux system. When configuring it (using make menuconfig) I didn't see any menu item for enabling initrd support, and the resulting .config file had '# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD not set' in it.
On a hunch I set both CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD and CONFIG_BLK_DEV_RAM to y by editing the .config file and rebuilt the kernel but it still doesn't load my initrd.
Why doesn't the menuconfig/xconfig have an option for it / how is it called / how can i get it to work?
