Enteprise 4.x is simply too old to have this feature. Rolling back the 4.92
or the Fedora Core 6 versions of the grub and associated tools is feasible,
but way too much work. If you want such tools in RedHat based releases, I'm
afraid you need to pony up the money and have someone write them.

Nonsense. The grubby tool, and the /sbin/new-kernel-pkg script which
calls it, are part of mkinitrd- which even updated RHEL 3

The kernel-xen spec just took a short-cut only running mkinitrd,
whereas the kernel spec runs /sbin/new-kernel-pkg.

But all this just explains the lack of a grub.conf entry, not why the
resulting initrd fails to boot sometimes...
