RE: Getting ext3 up and running

cp /boot/initrd.xxx /boot/initrd.xxx.bck
cp /boot/initrd.xxx /tmp
mkdir /tmp/initrd_loop
mount -o loop /tmp/initrd.xxx /tmp/initrd_loop
cd /tmp/initrd_loop 

see the modules loaded by linuxrc script and corresponding .o files in lib directory

remove the modules unneeded and corresponding insmod command in linuxrc

umount /tmp/initrd_loop

verify if size is affordable

cp /tmp/initrd.xxx /boot

if you have grub you are done, else run lilo
