And where do you load this initrd image from?
I am talking about systems that don't have any (significant) flash
onboard. For instance, we have such a setup running on boards with
just 512 kB EPROM (right, EPROM, not flash). We have to load the
kernel and anything else over the PCMCIA interface. I don't see a
ways how this can be done with the normal PCMCIA package.
