Hi all

                I've been trying to install RH 5.0 in an  Olivetti 486SX. Everything
seems to work fine until lilo instalation is reached. The instalation
tool tells me it is impossible to install lilo and gives no reason. I
have installed  RH 5.0 succefully in several machines and have no clue
of what is happening.
        Can anybody help me ??

        Thanks in advance

1. RH5, lilo.conf, initrd ?

I have RH5 installed and running.  I was getting ready to build the
latest kernel, when I came across the following line in lilo.conf

initrd = /boot/initrd.img

From reading the LILO docs, I have found out that this is an initial
RAM disk that is loaded as boot time.  And that's about the extent of
it.  Most of the examples do not even reference this option.

What is the purpose of this image ?
How do I build one ?
