installation failed

I used the latest netboot image:

I tried to install a base system. Installation went fine, yaboot installed ok too. At reboot I am thrown into a busybox shell. The error messages I get are:

Gave up waiting for a root device. Common problems:
 - Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
   - Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
   - Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
 - Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT!  /dev/disk/by-uuid/long-number does not exist. Dropping to a shell!
FATAL: Error inserting i8042 (/lib/modules/3.0.0-1-powerpc/kernel/drivers/input/serio/i8042.ko): No such device FATAL: Error inserting atkbd (/lib/modules/3.0.0-1-powerpc/kernel/drivers/input/keyboard/atkbd.ko): No such device

It has nothing to do with yaboot as I also installed on another computer where I skipped yaboot installation (I had yaboot working fine). I get the same errors on that machine. It seems it has something to do with some kernel modules.
