How do I make initrd.img?

I have Windows XP, FC3 and Slack 10.1 installed on my system. I know I need an initrd.img from Slack to edit grub in Fedora. How do I make it? Does it matter if I have a SATA hdd? Thank you.

I have a couple of pages titled:
"Slackware initrd mini HOWTO"
It's written by Patrick Volkerding, so you can
get it from the Slackware web site, or just
Google for it
