	Hmm... `cd /usr/src/linux/Documentation/; rgrep -r nfsroot *`
results in a number of hits on a certain file called 'nfsroot.txt'. :) All
you ever wanted to know about NFS root mounting at boot time is there for
you to read. Also, kernel-parameters.txt also has some information about
it. Though don't feel too bad, it took me a while to find it too.

Note that 'nfsaddrs' is now 'ip', but the old keyword still works as well
(as I used it). TTYL.
