dell 2850 initrd problem.

I had to replace the raid memory and battery in a Dell 2850, it broke 
somehow and the machine was complaining on boot up. That problem went 
away, but now I have a problem at bootup.

the msgs I see:

exec of init (/sbin/init) failed!!!: 20
umount /initrd/dev failed 2
kernel panic - not syncing attempted to kill init

I am running NASH on it.

I assume that I probably have to rebuild the initrd ?

Or is there a standard or easier way to do it?

just to be on the safe side, what is the best procedure to get the 
machine booting again?
