So my "/tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/Cxxxxxx" is:
------------------------- [ BEGIN Cxxxxxx ] -------------------------
DEFAULT standard
LABEL standard
KERNEL vmlinuz
# APPEND initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=32768 root=/dev/hde1 udev acpi=off rootdelay=5
APPEND initrd=initrd ramdisk_size=32768 root=2101 udev acpi=off rootdelay=5
------------------------- [ END Cxxxxxx ] -------------------------

so the right root-string is: "root=2101".

Ok, the solution for *this problem* seems to be to write "root=2101".
But why can't I write "root=/dev/hde1" as in kernel 2.4.25?
Is this a kernel bug?
Or have I done an error somewhere?
