Still plugging away at migrating my RH9 laptop 2.4->2.6.

Latest issue is mkinitrd: "make install" failed with this complaint:

  All of your loopback devices are in use.
  mkinitrd failed
  make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
  make: *** [install] Error 2

And *then* I read that I'm supposed to upgrade mkinitrd.  Sigh, OK
break out the FC3 CD's and copy mkinitrd-4.1.18-2's rpm.  Upgrade that,
find a dependency on lvm2.  Well, bring that over too.  Try to install
lvm2-2.00.25, find it has a dependency on... (drum roll)... kernel

Which mkinitrd should I use?  Or is this not my real problem?
