Way off topic but here's what I'm working on at the moment:
I'm trying to roll a few of my own kernels 


but keep tripping over myself somehow..
Far as I can tell I have included everything I should need for drives 
and filesystem support yet it won't mount the filesystem.
Having same issue on two systems I tried to make my own kernel for.
I should be able to figure this out.
Don't want to hijack the topic too badly ;-)

One system is the P3 450Mhz box with plain old IDE hard drive.

Other system is Intel Q6700 (2.67Ghz) with NVIDIA SATA (I specifically 
enabled this in kernel tried it with & without it compiled in (generic 
Also having same problem on older IDE only system.
I have to be missing something really basic.
And of course the centos stock kernels are working fine..

Mounting root filesystem. mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
