since apparently most (if nor all) people use ext3, i guess it is a good  
decision to have that kind of essentials built-in.

i am not very fond of the initrd stuff.
the fr is hardly extensible, we need what hardware is there and what is  
need to make it at least boot (or work).
an initrd is imo used mostly to cover different hw configurations w/o  
having to rebuild the kernel everytime.
i guess it would slow down the boot (load/unload intrd, free ram and so  
on) w/o added value.

as fort the modules and init.d -- why isn't adding the modules to  
/etc/modules sufficient?
