[uClinux-dev] Initrd works only with ext2

I have been using initrd with kernel 2.4.26. The initrd image was ext2 
filesystem and everything worked right.

I tried to switch to another filesystem (jffs2), but my kernel cannot 
mount the root (Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 01:00).

I tried to use other filesystems (minix for example), the same problem.

It seems that only ext2 can be mounted.

Has anybody come across this behaviour?

Kernel has jffs2,minix etc filesystems support.
