They apply if you have no better ones :-).  Almost 2 months ago I had
problems booting a new machine with a 2.4 kernel other than the bf2.4
one.  I couldn't figure out why it couldn't find any /bin/init.  It
turned out that, somehow, I had "boot=" instead of "root=" in boot
loader config.  'b' != 'r'

Ok.
