your ramdisk is not loaded with the right .ko.

So the ext2 mount of the ramdisk works. The ramdisk itself is incomplete.

here's the mkinitrd I use when I really want it all to really, really work.

mkinitrd -v -f --with=usb-storage --with=libata --with=ata_piix
--with=sd_mod --with=scsi_mod  --with=usbcore --with=libusual $1 $2

for usage, man mkinitrd
