FC6T3 x86-64 booting issue



hi,
I am unable to boot FC6T3 x86-64... on (AMD64X2, 4GB DDR2, SATA II, Asus M2N-E)
The initrd image is missing in  /boot directory.
I have tried to fix the issue by creating initrd image as suggested by alan <alan clueserver org>: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

  I've been unsuccessful in installing t3 from dvd on a standard intel

  Has anybody figured out how to install before then?
Yep.  I posted it earlier.


After you do the install, boot with the "rescue option" on the install dvd.

When you get a prompt:

chroot /mnt/sysmount
cd /boot
mkinitrd --image-version --nocompress initrd `uname -r`

Then add this line to the /etc/grub.conf entry:
initrd /initrd-<kernelversion>

save, sync and reboot.

with following result:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
root(hd0,0)
FileSystem Type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.17-1.2630.fc6 ro root=/dev/basevg/rootlv rhgb quiet

initrd /initrd-2.6.17-1.2630.fc6
 [Linux-initrd @ 0xdf916000, 0x5b9800 bytes]

Error 28: Selected item cannot fit into memory
Press any key to continue...

Any ideas how to make FC6T3 boot?

Cheers
