Yes you do. IDE and ext2 support are in modules - so you have to create
a ramdisk, which contains:
- ide-disk.o, ide-mod.o, ide-probe-mod.o
- ext2.o
- small static shell (like ash-static)
- static insmod
- /linuxrc shell script, which should look like this:

-- cut --
insmod /ide-mod.o
insmod /ide-probe-mod.o
insmod /ide-disk.o
insmod /ext.o
-- /cut --

or stg like that... - hope it will work...
