From the GRUB command-line, you can boot a specific kernel with a named initrd image as follows:

grub> kernel /bzImage-2.6.14.2
[Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size=0x29672e]

grub> initrd /initrd-2.6.14.2.img
[Linux-initrd @ 0x5f13000, 0xcc199 bytes]

grub> boot

Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.

If you don’t know the name of the kernel to boot, just type a forward slash (/) and press the Tab key. GRUB will display the list of kernels and initrd images.
