Unter Linux können Treiber/Module entweder fest in die initial initrd (ramdisk) eingebaut werden, oder später als Modul nachgeladen werden.

    initrd – boot loader initialized RAM disk

    The special file /dev/initrd is a read-only block device.
    Device /dev/initrd is a RAM disk that is initialized (e.g.
    loaded) by the boot loader before the kernel is started.
    The kernel then can use the the block device /dev/initrd's
    contents for a two phased system boot-up.

    In the first boot-up phase, the kernel starts up and
    mounts an initial root file-system from the contents of
    /dev/initrd (e.g. RAM disk initialized by the boot
    loader). In the second phase, additional drivers or other
    modules are loaded from the initial root device's con-
    tents. After loading the additional modules, a new root
    file system (i.e. the normal root file system) is mounted
    from a different device.

    Um einen Treiber in die initrd einzubauen sind folgende Schritte notwendig:

    echo "r8168" >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
    update-initramfs -v -u -k `uname -r`
