How to make hd_media initrd for debian
, OP needs to read the material available.... I can not think of a easier way to answer this, and explain it all.From: The Kernel Newbie Corner: "initrd" and "initramfs"--What's Up With That?
Where did that initrd file come from?
Typically, when you install a new kernel, you'll get a matching initrd file automatically, but you can always build one manually using the mkinitrd command. I'm not going to get into horrendous detail with this command. If you truly want to play with it, feel free. Create a new initrd file or two, then pull it apart to see what's inside.
But here's where things get just a bit more interesting.
OK, So What's the "initramfs" Thingy?
And here's where we might part ways regarding terminology. I will always refer to the above file as the "initrd" file since, in my opinion, the "initramfs" early root file system is something quite different.------snip
