I'm not sure what all you're saying above that I clipped but creating an
initrd is a relatively straight forward process.

It is sort of important to have all the modules loaded when you create
it but the idea is...

mkinitrd initrd-kernel-version.img kernel-version

and I have no idea what you named your built kernel as but if I were
doing this for 2.6.27.7-134.fc10.i686 then the command would be...

cd /boot
mkinitrd initrd-2.6.27.7-134.fc10.i686.img 2.6.27.7-134.fc10.i686

I would have expected that whatever you are following to build your own
kernel should have that step covered (or perhaps a build/install that
would do this for you) but I have no idea what steps you are taking or
why.
