I was using the kernel located at http://udpcast.linux.lu/20051223/linux, 
I did not realize for the merge command, I needed the sources.

Using the merge, is it rebuilding the entire initrd from the sources, and 
not really adding a file to an existing initrd?

With the sources, I'm able to complete the build with no errors while 
building using kernel-udpcast- and the above mentioned 
kernel linked.

Now the initrd went from 822172 to 3786015 (both bzipped) and when booting 
to the image, I get "Warning: unable to open an initial console."  I see 
no other errors while scrolling through the displayed text.

Am I totally messing this up by using the pxe kernel?  Should I be 
modifying the /lib/modules/ sources?

I used the same command line as the previous message to build this.

Am I doing something horribly wrong?

Thanks for your help.  It's a great app.
