Good Morning Peter!

No, I do *not* use initrd.

The rootfs is an ext2 on a CompactFlash card (Industial Type).
I tried cards from different brands but without result. Moreover, Linux 
uses these cards through its IDE interface. I can copy 5MB files around 
the disk without trouble. To me, the storage system works fine.
