Following the instructions on the wiki, I don't have a
initrd.img- file on my USB. I have 2 files:


I tried "load (usb0,0)/vmlinux-" and that seemed to be fine.
Then "initrd (usb0,0)/initrd.gz" and that didn't give me an error but
I don't know if this is what I'm to do (I suspect this is where I'm
going wrong...should I be running initrd on a .gz file?).
Then "g console=tty no_auto_cmd root=/dev/hda1 rootdelay=8
machtype=8.9" simply runs the installation process again. But gNS is
already installed. I don't want to install it again.

I guess I'm confused as to how the initrd.img- file
ever made it to the USB along with it being in a /boot directory.
