Hi List,

I have got the Problem that syslinux does not boot my kernel it loads it:

SYSLINUX 2.02 2003-02-13  Copyright (C) 1994-2003 H. Peter Anvin
Loading linux..............Ready.
Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.

and then it just hangs.

Is this a problem with Syslinux or with my kernel?
My syslinux.cfg is:

default test1
prompt 1
timeout 10
label test1
 kernel linux
 append root=/dev/nfs nfsroot= ip=dhcp

Any hint will be greatly appreciated.

MfG Julian Picht
