Here is my linuxrc inside the initrd image (this is the one based off of the
evms initrd I found on the web, since it seemed the most complete).

Please note that I still can't get the "/bin/ash" command to work properly,
though I'm working on it. I did put in the /dev/tty* and /dev/pt* nodes
into the initrd image, but still no luck.

here's the initrd i produce (shell is modified mdk/redhat nash) note that i mount manually the root fs then i pivot_root.

-------------------------------------------------
... load modules ...
echo Mounting /proc filesystem
mount -t proc /proc /proc
echo Creating device files
mkdevices /dev
echo Activating md devices
mknod /dev/md1 b 9 1
mdassemble
echo Scanning logical volumes
vgscan
echo Activating logical volumes
vgchange -ay
echo 0x0100 > /proc/sys/kernel/real-root-dev
echo Mounting root filesystem
mount -o defaults --ro -t ext3 /dev/vg00/lvol1 /sysroot
pivot_root /sysroot /sysroot/initrd
echo Remounting devfs at correct place if necessary
handledevfs
umount /initrd/proc
-------------------------------------------------
mkdevices: creates device files based on /proc/partitions (if not devfs)
mdassemble: diet-libc version of mdadm --assemble (cannot build full
mdadm with diet-libc)
handledevfs: is described in the comment above

Here is my menu.lst from grub.  I've been testing with grub just so that I
could enter changes at boot time instead of running "lilo" all over the
place.
you can append options to lilo command lines (just type 'em)

-------- CUT --------

gweber windforce:/tmp/test$ more menu.lst
default=1
