can't think of any reason that runlevel would matter since initrd is
loaded only upon boot.

The way I would probably handle it on my system...

mkinitrd initrd-2.6.18-1.2239.fc5.img.custom 2.6.18-1.2239.fc5
cp initrd-2.6.18-1.2239.fc5.img initrd-2.6.18-1.2239.fc5.img.saved
mv initrd-2.6.18-1.2239.fc5.img.custom initrd-2.6.18-1.2239.fc5.img

Though I have learned to check the contents of /etc/modprobe.conf to
make certain that things are the way that I want before I execute
