I'm getting ready to use Jaunty on a Dell server with QLogic fibre channel
cards in it.  I'm getting the firmware error described here:  The workaround
says this:

"You can trivially add support by creating your own file in
/etc/initramfs-tools/hooks that copies /lib/udev/ and the
/lib/firmware/ql2400_fw.bin file into the initramfs"

(In my case the firmware would be ql23xx_fw.bin ).  But I don't understand,
how do I copy a file into the initramfs.  I have no idea what that means.
