mkinitrd what kernel version?
 
I was going to make a ram disk using the mkinitrd command. I am not sure about the kernel version info I need to include
here is my example
mkinitrd -o initrd.ing 2.6.8

or do I need to do

mkinitrd -o initrd.ing 2.6.8-0223

do I need to include my extraversion info(0223) from my kernel make file?

it really up to you.....you can name it what you want as long as you have .img at the end of the name

just make sure when you copy it to /boot and edit /boot/grub/menu.lst file the name is exactly as you named it

It's true that you can name the image anything you want to call it but the kernel version should match the module tree. Look in /lib/modules and if your module tree is 2.6.8-0223 then that is what you have to use in mkinitrd. The module tree should match the output of the command uname -r so that is another way you could check.
