Hi,

I experimenting with different boot arguments to make the 2.6 kernel
boot on the DB1500 board (with the AU1500 MIPS processor).

Along with the image, the make also generated a /usr directory
containing the initramfs_data.cpio.gz and other files, namely:

CVS      Makefile    gen_init_cpio    initramfs_data.S
initramfs_data.cpio.gz  initramfs_list
Kconfig  built-in.o  gen_init_cpio.c  initramfs_data.cpio
initramfs_data.o

During the configuration, 'Create Root File System' was selected in the
xconfig menu.
Therefore, I think using NFS is appropriate.  In the boot args, I ve
written the following:

root=/dev/nfs  
nfsroot=192.168.1.8:/tftpboot/usr_as/initramfs_list 
console=tty0,115200,n,1,none
ip=xxx.xxx.x.146:xxx.xxx.x.8 (client: server)

Please help me out here--
Thank you..
Ashlesha.
