I went to the site suggested in the previous post, however, I think I want mkinitrd 2.9, which is not there at that site. In fact I can't find it anywhere. I am following an article that is in http://www.LinuxNewbie
about building and installing the 2.4 kernel in Redhat 7. Somehow, he found 2.9 at ftp://rawhide.redhat.com/pub/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/.
It may have been there at one time, but I can't find it.
2.6 is available, but it seems like I should have that version already on my RH7.0. Do I really need this file to compile the new kernel?
