    If you can tell me how to get the ramdisk image I can mount it, copy the files out, modify them, and then make the image again. This is actually quite easy and if you search on editing RedHat's ramdisk or initrd you find out step by step how it's done. It's very simple, your kernel has to support romfs, redhat 7 does, you mount the image with mount -t romfs filename /mnt then you can copy the files out to another directory. To put it back to an image you use genromfs.

    well, I don't have a 2.5 kernel to look at, but I tried what you said with a 2.0.1 kernel and was unable to ifnd the first 2 bytes in the dump. 1f 2b correct? Maybe it is different with 2.0.1. Please see your PM, I'm going to give you an email address so maybe we can work together on this.
