Stupid me. ;) OK understood. The installer loads the "old" kernel from
the net and doesn't use the one of /nfsroot.

I took out the HD and overwrite the kernel with above and it works now:

raqian1:~# uptime

Please let me know if I should do some tests for you. Do you think I
should test the 2.6.25 on the RaQ1? (How can I do this?)
And thanks for your efforts and all the good work!
