    It is quite possible to build a kernel that has all the drivers built-in,
    but still require an initrd file. For instance, if you have a recent
    RedHat or Fedora system, '/' may very well be on an LVM partition, which
    means you need an initrd to do a 'lvm varyonvg' before mounting your real
    root filesystem will work....
