nfs-root booting works for 2.2.* client, but not 2.4.19

I going nuts here.  In June, I set up a scheme to have an old PC boot from a
local image (floppy and/or hd) and run of a nfs-root partition on my
server. Works very well with 2.2.20, and I replicated it with 2.2.21.

But for the life of me, I cannot get it to work with 2.4.19. Neither the
stock kernel (from the sources .dep) nor with the open-mosix patch. I tried
numerous config option, and all I get, invariably, is a kernel panic relating
to init right after the local hd* devices are found.  At this point 2.2.*
seems to find and use the eth0 device and the remote partitions.

Any suggestions welcome. Please CC me as I'm not subscribed on -user or

Thanks, Dirk
