[klibc] nfs root filesystem problem

 	Hi ,

 	I am doing some tests with klibc 1.1.16. I would like to have my 
root file system on an nfs export , but the /etc folder it to be mounted 
from a different nfs export.
 	I am using with initrd ramdisk initramfs nfsroot etc 
compiled in. My pxelinux.cfg looks like this:

default opteron
label opteron
kernel gentoo/vmlinuz-opteron
append  initrd=gentoo/initramfs.img ip=dhcp nfsroot=

 	I created an initamfs filled with the contents of /usr/lib/klibc +proc 
folder +dev with console tty1 and null.
 	I tried to write an /init with:
<various combinations of nfsmoun and ipconfig commands>

but in each case I get a kernel panic complaining about being unable to 
execute /init.

 	If I put kinit as /kinit it panics also , I dont have the message 
available right now but it looks like it does not parse the ip= and 
nfsroot= lines.

 	Obviously I am doing something totally wrong. I would be gratefull 
if anyone can provide some assistance.
