i added some prink() for debug ... ;)
my ramdisk.image.gz is broken?
but i can mount(-o loop) it in my host(i386-linux) after gunziped.

and how to creat a correct ramdisk image?
    using following step?
        mkfs -t ext2 /dev/loop0
        mount /dev/loop0 /mnt/rd
                mkdir /mnt/rd/bin  /dev ...
                cp bash etc. to /mnt/rd/bin ...
                 mknod ....
        dd if=/dev/loop0 of=./ramdisk.image
        gzip -9 ramdisk.image

what can i do?

thanks for any help.

john zhan.
hacking time.
