    Subject2.4.0-test7 unable to mount root partition at boot time
    I received the following error while booting 2.4.0-test7.

    request_module[block-major-3] Root fs not mounted
    VFS: cannot open root device "" or 03:06
    Please append a correct "root = " boot option
    Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 03:06

    My root partition is hda6, and I passed the root parameter to
    loadlin...same result. 2.3.36 boots fine. Below is the output of
    scripts/ver_linux . Maybe I have to upgrade some utils. Suggestions
    welcome. I noticed that my depmod verision doesn't support the --F
    option, however, it appears that my modules compiled fine.

    PII, Dell Latitude 333MHz, 64MB RAM
