    That's not a GRUB thing. It's only if you want to use an initrd. LILO has the same thing - you can specify an initrd image with the initrd= paramter in lilo.conf. If you don't want an initrd, just leave it out.

    in default grub.conf (generated in installation)
    it is like this
    kernel /vmlinuz.bla.bla ro root=LABEL=/

    i add another one in the same way (without initrd)

    kernel /bzImage ro root=LABEL=/

    it didnt boot, i deleted root=LABEL=/
    then it worked.

    i did not understand why
    Have a nice day

    Those disk labels always mess stuff up. Don't use them at all is my suggestion.
