semi-OT kernel compile question

Hi. I'm trying to compile a new kernel for netbooting my SPARCstation ELC but I keep running into a wall when it comes to mounting the root filesystem.

Everything works fine (booting from my SS20) with a precompiled kernel from helllabs.org, but my own builds always die on VFS kernel panics when it tries to mount the root FS.

I *know* the problem...according to every HOWTO in existance, one must turn on the "Root filesystem as NFS" option in the kernel config. The *problem* is that I can find no such option in the 2.2 (or just ot of curiosity, 2.4) kernel tree.

Any ideas?
