If you've gotten that far (didnt know mosix worked with 2.6...thought  
it only worked with 2.4), you'll simply need to do a search for  
compilation of the kernel -

That should get you going with initrd. Initrd is very important, as it  
is the critical item after the bios, that will allow you to boot  
properly...cant just copy it.
