+mkinitrd: mkinitrd (make an initial ramdisk)
+mkinitrd: mkinitrd is a script to create an initial ramdisk that is loaded at
+mkinitrd: the same time as the kernel. The initial ramdisk may be responsible
+mkinitrd: for loading kernel modules (such a filesystem or SCSI controller
+mkinitrd: module) that are needed to mount the root filesystem.
+mkinitrd: The "initrd" is implemented as an initramfs. See the kernel
+mkinitrd: documentation for more information on this, if you are interested.
