Initrd questions

This is my second time building LFS (first time was book version 5.1)

I want to take my customized LFS and make an initrd so I can boot PXELinux

My question is what file format is this?

I was led to believe it was gZipped but I can't open it with Winzip on my
Windows box.

Also ... I know you make it with mkinitrd but that only does the modules

How do I do the whole root FS?

Thanks for any help you can give.
