Hi, I have the following machine

with Dual P3 550's and 2GB of RAM in them. Redhat 6.2 with its stock
kernel 2.2.14-5 detects the 2GB of RAM and boots up happily.

When I compile 2.2.17 with 2GB RAM, I get the following error on boot

request_module[block-major-8]: Rootfs not mounted
VFS: Cannot open root device 08:01
Kernel Panic: VFS: Unable to mount root FS on 08:01

However, compiling the same kernel with the only change being to limit
the kernel to using only 1GB RAM causes no such problems [all other
configuration variables are the same]. I get the same results with
2.2.16 also

Can others confirm/deny my findings ? Any workarounds ?
