Hello Sven > booting from an usb device needs an initrd with an extra delay to let the usb > disk be mounted before trying to continue. There's a rootdelay=nn option since 2.6.12 or .13. Therefore, an initrd is no longer required. This works for sure with IEEE1394 (Firewire) disks, but should also with USB disks.

Hardware has limitations, software doesn't. It's a real shame that Turing machines are so poor at I/O.
