I'd like to thank everyone who wrote in about my problem with
mkinitrd, so that I could make the root fs an xfs volume.

Thanks for explaining why it wouldn't work (2.4.2 loopback bug) and
what I could do to work around it.

I used Kelly Eicher's boot floppy set ( www.astro.umn.edu/~carde )
which are fantasticly easy to use, and got it all done in about 30
minutes.

Cheers,
nic
