that file is normally a ram disk image of your kernel, and located in the /boot directory. I don't really know why you wanted it but I hope that helps...
I think you'll find that this file is created when you compile a new kernel.
Check out :-
Where it says (in an appendix) -
The initrd is the "initial ramdisk". It is enough files stored in a ramdisk to store needed drivers . You need the drivers so that the kernel can mount / and kick off init.
You can avoid this file 'initrd.img' and eliminate the need of 'initrd.img', if you build your scsi drivers right into the kernel, instead of into modules. (Many persons recommend this).
