Thank you for the reply.
It really make sense to me.
After, I posted my question, I was suspicious about the
kernel compiling. I re-compiled with diffrent configuration.
Now, It worked !!! what the .....
I had this problem 1 week. I'm sorry to everybody.
Our system is headless system, no floppy, no HDD, no mouse...
It downloaded kernel and mount it through NFS.
One more question is, when I mount RAM disk as root filesystem,
should I use rdev too ? Is rdev only for floppy ?
Thank you all
