I'm sure I can't be the only Fedora user 
who finds this reference to "mkinitrd errata" difficult to follow.
It has been explained to me, but I still find the language bizarre.

I assume most people will install Fedora distribution kernels from rpm's.
If that is so, surely it would be easier - and more informative -
to say which rpm you are referring to?
