Aaargh:
Its HEX and I tried always in my "linuxrc":
------------------------- [ BEGIN linuxrc ] -------------------------
...
# brw-rw---- 1 root disk 33, 1 Jan 19 2001 /dev/hde1
echo 0x3301 > /proc/sys/kernel/real-root-dev
...
------------------------- [ END linuxrc ] -------------------------
So it would have probably worked if I would have written "echo
0x2101 ..."

Thank you, Randy.
