root fs...

Ok, snagging Thomas's version of init gets me a bit closer...
init actually executes... that in combination with the new root

However it looks like it goes through /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit and
then promptly stops...  There are a few exceptions that show up
in the dmesg file... 

Oh yeah... and how come it thinks its hostname is elrond...  I
can't find a single reference to that.  (Not that it matters
all that much).

What's supposed to happen after /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit?

Given enough eyeballs all bugs seem shallow.
