    Subject[ PATCH ] fix to documentation for kexec
    Hello,

    I've noticed that the boot options are not correct for in
    the documentation for kdump. The "init" keyword is not
    necessary, and causes a kernel panic when booting with an
    initrd on Fedora 5.

    Thanks;
    Judith Lebzelter
