mind-numbingly stupid Mondo warning

My question is… Upon attempting to run
mondoarchive with openSUSE 11.1 kernel,
mondoarchive says: Your kernel has no ramdisk support. That’s
mind-numbingly stupid but I’ll allow it if you’re planning to use a
failsafe kernel. Are you?

My web searchings have not shown a solid fix to the issue.
So is there?
Ive been trying to find a comparable backup software like acronis for on the windowz side.So I wanted to see if this mondo will fit the bill somewhat.
