What does GRUB ramdisk do?
In GRUB, what exactly happens when "ramdisk=8196" is added to the "kernel" line?
I have finally just gotten Gentoo installed for the first time, but when I first re-booted I had error messages kind of like:
I Googled the "Attempt to..." message and found directions that I should add the ramdisk parameter. It apparently fixed the problem, but I don't know what it does. I didn't see any reference to ramdisk in the install instructions, so I can't help but think I made an error somewhere else....
