Why slackware doesn't use the initrd file while booting up? I do not see this entry in lilo.conf file. Though it is not the case with other linux distro like Red Hat and Ubuntu

The slackware kernel probably has all drivers already built in.
the initrd drive actually is a ramdisk (cpio formated) image.
If that ramdisk isn't used/needed then why bother manageing it?
