initrd to ext3 format


Hi! I want to create a new ramdisk for my Debian...
In the /etc/mkinitrd/mkinitrd.conf file the MKIMAGE='mkcramsf.....' is set to cram filesystem. I want to use the ext3 instead. I don't want to add cram fs support to my operating system.
How i can do that?

you wouldn't want to use ext3, as being a ramdisk, you're not going to be changing the data, so journalling is not the way to go. so use ext2. not something i've particuarly ever looked at, but http://www.faqs.org/docs/evms/x3834.html and http://www.linuxmafia.com/faq/Debian/mkext2initrd.html look like you'll get enough pointers.
