If the system uses the ext3 file system or a SCSIcontroller, an initial RAM disk is needed. The purpose
of the initial RAM disk is to allow a modular kernel to have access to modules that it might need to
boot from before the kernel has access to the device where the modules normally reside.

The initial RAM disk can be created with the mkinitrd command. However, this step is performed
automatically if the kernel and its associated packages are installed or upgraded from the RPM pack-
ages distributed by Red Hat, Inc.; thus, it does not need to be executed manually. To verify that it was
created, use the command ls -l /boot to make sure the initrd-2.4.20-2.47.1.img file was
created (the version should match the version of the kernel just installed).

The next step is to verify that the boot loader has been configured to boot the new kernel. Refer to
Section 30.6 Verifying the Boot Loader for details.
