SubjectLinux 2.2.17 broken with initrd
I've been fighting with this for a couple of days now.  I've been trying
under lilo, syslinux, and grub to get the kernel to follow the documented
behavior of executing /linuxrc if you tell it to load an initrd as it did
back in 2.0.35 (which was the last time I actually tried to use an initrd
for anything..)

The 2.4.0test kernels work fine. For the record:

-­8<-- /usr/src/linux-2.2.17

Any ideas why this isn't working? More importantly, if this is known not
to work right, how are distributions coping with the inability to use
/linuxrc? Documentation other than that in the kernel tree which was
written in 1996 seems to be scarce.

My opinions might not be Progeny's. Even if they're not, I'm still right.
