How can a see the content of an initrd.img file?

another non-xen question... :(

it depends on how it was built. For mine:

   [root@gt5 ~/initrd]# more README
   # assemble me with
   # find . | cpio -c -o | gzip -9 >  /boot/img.aoe

so, for that one... it would be

# mkdir tmp
# cd tmp
# zcat /boot/img.aoe | cpio -c -i
