Is there  wayfor me to manually copy an appropriate initrd to the /boot 
directory?  I know I can edit the menu.lst to include it.

And I tried to boot with the previous kernel.  It won't boot, probably because 
xorg.conf was modified for 9.04 and the previous video driver was changed to 
something generic.  It did inform me it didn't have a lglfx version for 9.04.
