root device name w/kernel-image
With the kernel image from a disk (2.4.20-bf2.4) and the root device set
to /dev/hda1 my "computer" boots up fine. With newer 2.4 kernel images
kernel-image-2.4.21-2-386) I can't seem to boot.
I tried these with and without the devfsd package installed and there
didn't seem to be a difference.
The kernel books but says it's unable to mount the root filesystem.
