    That is great, thanks.

    Although it doesn't seem to list parameters I know exist like "install=, showopts, ..."

    Anyway is was exactly what I was looking for as far as nfsroot.

    Know I need to figure how to recompile the kernel for network access so I can pxe boot into a live cd.

    At least life isn't boring.

    Thanks
    Bob

    There are kernel parameters that can be set at boot or module load
    time, and there are kernel configuration parameters. Your statement
    just above makes it look as if you mean the latter.

    Kernel parameters you can get with the kernel-source package, look
    under /usr/src/linux/Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt

    The tool that also parses the line and might appears to be kernel
    parameters is linuxrc. Install linuxrc and
    view /usr/share/doc/packages/linuxrc/linuxrc.html
