Note: Read the mailing list announcment for a possible Mkinitcpio replacement with Dracut.

dracut creates an initial image used by the kernel for preloading the block device modules (such as IDE, SCSI or RAID) which are needed to access the root filesystem. This might replace mkinitcpio in Arch Linux in the near future.
