    Even better would be to report the bug ;-/

    I can't reproduce it here. 2.6.0-test8 vanilla, so far (last 15 minutes)
    tried with
    * compressed initrd image
    * plain ext2
    and I'll try romfs as soon as I hunt down mkfs for that animal. All
    appears to be working...

    What did it say before the "typical message"? Specifically, were there
    any lines starting with RAMDISK:?

    .config would be also useful.
