SubjectRe: Linux 2.4.0ac11
As I don't use initrd at all I am a bit out of my depth here but according 
to Documentation/Changes you need a new mkinitrd and the version suggested
seems to be 2.8-1. Checking my up-to-date RedHat 7.0 workstation it has
mkinitrd version 2.6-1, so this might be your problem?

Best regards,
