What's the matter with build-in netconsole?

I try to use netconsole to keep Linux kernel oops to
another machine. I've compiled netconsole into the
kernel (i.e. select CONFIG_NETCONSOLE=y, when run
'make menuconfig').
After that, I put
(which is described in
to the kernel command line as provided by grub and
rerun my machine with the new compiled kernel.
But then, when the system is booting, it shows the
following message:

... ...
Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel.
audit(1103234064.4294965842:0): initialized
netconsole: eth0 doesn't exist, aborting.
... ...

Then, What's the matter with the build-in
netconsole? Have I misconfiged the netconsole? and How
to really run build-in netconsole?

Thank you.

Best Regards,
