build or take the normal initrd you need (/boot/initrd*):

mkdir -p /usr/src/initramfs
cd /usr/src/initramfs
zcat /boot/initrd.img-$(uname -r) | cpio -i

your initrd is now extracted to /usr/src/initramfs

now, build you own kernel (howtos on Google) with option:


You can also choose, which compress tool you want to use (gzip, bzip2...). 
After that, build your kernel.
In the end, you one file, with kernel and initrd inside. But, for every change 
in the initram fs, you have to execute "make" in the kernel source.
