[root@intel-s3e37-03 tmp]# cp initramfs-2.6.32-131.0.15.el6.x86_64.img initrd.gz
[root@intel-s3e37-03 tmp]# gunzip initrd.gz 
[root@intel-s3e37-03 tmp]# rm initrd
rm: remove regular file `initrd'? y
[root@intel-s3e37-03 tmp]# cp initramfs-2.6.32-191.el6.x86_64.img initrd.gz
[root@intel-s3e37-03 tmp]# gunzip initrd.gz
[root@intel-s3e37-03 tmp]# 

Trees mentioned above no longer exist on servers AFAICT.  I tried -191 as well without any problems.

WORKSFORME.
