ok. i didn't explain myself right. I must pass to the kernel an init, but i can't use the initrd command from GRUB, 
but i found out that initrd can be passed to the kernel as an argument.

this file is a initrd file to the L4Linux kernel. What i'm trying to do is boot the Fedora that i have in the disk using the new kernel.
But i think i have overcome the L4 problems. Now is just plain Linux Kernel problems (i think)...

but tks for the help anyway.
