    I tried `modprobe rd rd_size=8192' and got:

    /lib/modules/2.2.6/block/rd.o: invalid parameter rd_size

    You ment changing the value of rd_size in drivers/block/rd.c, did you not?
    How difficult would it be making it a module parameter? Does not kernel/setup.c,
    kernel/head.S use this value?
