hi
i have just downloaded the 2.6.9 kernel and have it pretty much up and running, still with a few errors on boot though.

one being something to do with initrd
a friend has just told me i must enter mkinitrd command which i think is something like:
Code:

/sbin/mkinitrd /boot/<xxx>
is this right? and what goes at the <xxx>

thanks

One of the great things about Linux is that it is totally self documenting and it tends to help you out when you let it.

Some important command line commands to know are

whatis
whereis
file
man
apropos
locate

In this case entering "man mkinitrd" will give you a better explanation to your answer than I could type in here.

Take a peek and post any questions you may have.

Example Command
 
Here is an example of what you would type:

mkinitrd /boot/initrd-2.6.9.1-2mdk.img 2.6.9.1-2mdk

Replace those numbers with the exact version of your kernel of course and you should be good to go.
