<1) grub's kernel/linux line, the root=/dev/[is_incorrect] parameter
<2) fstab's:  [is_incorrect] / root line
<
<Kernel may panic if it can't find its system in (1)
<Kernel may find (1), but (2) is wrong

<(1) and (2) can even be different if the kernel can use it.

okay is there any other 64 bit boot loader that i can use instead of 
grub2?
i have tried:
installed kernel with every single thing with a *
changing my device map to  (sd0) /dev/sda
rebooted = error kernel panic
reverted to snapshot.

tried changing fstab in every variation i could think of.
rebooted every time
error kernel panic
reverted to snapshot.

changed the /boot/grub/grub.cfg and the fstab with every variation i 
could think of.
rebooted every time
error kernel panic
reverted to snapshot.

it must be grub2 that is the problem.

is there anything i can do? Or do i have to wait until the LFS book for 
64 bit with grub2 gets out?

thank you for your help
