This holds the solution:
/* Note, unlike /proc/partitions I'm showing
the numbers in hex
in the same format as the root= option */
printk("%02x%02x %10llu %s",
sgp->major, sgp->first_minor,
(unsigned long long)get_capacity(sgp)
>> 1,
disk_name(sgp, 0, buf));

So my "/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/Cxxxxxx" is:
------------------------- [ BEGIN Cxxxxxx ] -------------------------
DEFAULT standard
LABEL standard
KERNEL vmlinuz
# APPEND initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=32768 root=/dev/hde1 udev
acpi=off rootdelay=5
APPEND initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=32768 root=2101 udev acpi=off
rootdelay=5
------------------------- [ END Cxxxxxx ] -------------------------

so the right root-string is: "root=2101".

But can anyone tell me how "root=/dev/hde1" translates to "root=2101"???

Thank you very much, Jan.

You brought me the solution.

Thanks
Markus
