I fully agree with you. I was now able to shrink the initrd from redhat
boot disks. I deleted some kernel modules never used on CoLocation
servers and now everything fints onto 1.44 which can be booted with

Now the question is, is it a bug or a feature. I guess my C/Assembler
knowledge is too small for figuring out things like memory management.
But I am going to add some kind of condition support to menu.lst/grub to
check wether there are bootable disks etc. So in future i can boot grub
from an el torito disk image on cdrom.
