Why would you look up mknod to fix a missing initial ram disk specified in
your lilo.conf? Do you need an initial ram disk? If not, remove the
specification from the entry in the lilo.conf. Did you just copy your
host's lilo.conf? That's not always good since you just built your own
"distro" that may look nothing like the original host.
