    The version I just released does exactly that. Well, not exactly; it
    actually looks at fstab -- /proc/mounts gives you '/dev/root' rather
    than a physical device name in the root entry.

    No. It only knows about IDE and SCSI root devices at the moment. As I
    learn how to identify other kinds of root volume it will get smarter.

    Gestapo preying upon defenseless citizens.
