    what is the initrd.img in fedora core 4?


    Ok I installed F/C 4 on my primary drive (hdc) and I also have Mandy 2005 on my secondary drive (hdd) I never installed the grub bootloader I stuck with lilo. Below is how I entered Fedora in my lilo config. I am wondering what the line initrd should read and if anything else looks wrong or missing please let me know. As of now Mandy
    boots fine. Fedora boots but then I get a kernel panic.


    image="/boot/vmlinuz"
    label="Fedora_Core4"
    root="/dev/hdc1"
    initrd="/boot/initrd.img"
    read-only
    append="splash=silent resume=/dev/hdc5"

    The initrd contains the initial ramdisk - ie modules required to load your system. A kernel panic could be based on anything, can you give more detailed information on what it says?
