If the kernel is zimage.usb2, is the following correct:
BL2 ext2 loadlin zimage.usb2 root=/dev/hdb2 ro initrd=initrd.gz
BL2 ramdisk root=/dev/ram rw initrd=initrd.gz
BL3 ext2 root=/dev/hdb1 rw initrd=initrd.gz
BL3 loop root=/dev/loop0 rw initrd=initrd.gz
What is initrd.gz doing? Why does regular BL use it for ramdisk and loop
but not to boot to ext2? Ubuntu apparently needs it to boot to ext2.

Thanks a lot. I don't know why XP (2002) included my card when SW10.2 did
