I've only done the simplest of things with remaking the initrd, to get
things to work after relabelling a swap partition.  The command line
was:  mkinitrd -f /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img `uname -r`

That was on an, otherwise, working machine.  The first uname being used
to set the right filename, the second being to associate it with the
right version of the kernel (as far as I read the man page about this).

NB:  Those are backticks or grave accents used on the command line, they
are NOT apostrophes nor single quotes.

[tim bigblack ~]$ rm -rfd /*^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Huname -ipr
2.6.21-1.3228.fc7 i686 i386

Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.  Today, it's FC7.
