Loading a ramdisk alongside of the Linux kernel is a standard feature of
uvmm. For that, add the ramdisk to your entry in the modules.list file.
With that it will be included in your image that is being built.
Then, in your uvmm.ned config file (if you're using that), add/change
the 'rd' entry to rd="rom/yourfile" where "yourfile" is the file you
added in your modules.list entry.
Does this help?
