USB boot


i got the rescue.bin and root.bin image of stable bf2.4 distrib, i
modified the rescue.bin for having a custom kernel (2.4.20 with usb
mass storage support), i installed successfully debian on a memory
key (same as an USB hdd)
however i have a little pblm, if i use rescue.bin then hit F3 then type
: "rescue root=/dev/sda2" (root partition is on /dev/sda2) ; i'm having
the kernel loading then kernel directly tries to boot up on sda2 ; but
the sda emulation has not had enough time to be recognized ..; so a
kernel panic occurs...

is there a way to do some kernel sleep (time needed for sda to be found)
before trying to get the root fs mounted ?
