kernel on the irix root as vmlinux. There is no root-file-system yet. I need

(sash) boot -f /vmlinux /dev/sda1
it starts to boot, but it hangs after the following message:

This comes just after the serial devices probe and the registering of the
Is this something releted to a missing root-file-system? I was expecting

I'm also curious where to fined the installer program which is mentioned in
Linux-installer.tgz/INSTALL and whether there is a solution to the rpm-binary
that is supposed not to work (as per th INSTALL doc)
Thanks for any insight! and for porting Linux/RedHat 5.0!
