test4-mm1 with the same config works on the same machine,

Root is supposed to be on the raid array, which did come up.
Lilo uses append="root=/dev/md/0".
Does reverting this fix it?
didn't realize that I want a root after all.

There is more than one way to specify a root, it seems. I never
set any numbers for my root, I use the root=/dev/md/0 parameter
to the kernel. I don't have any initramfs.
Why don't those who want to keep an initramfs simply
specify root=/dev/root which don't need extra parsing?
