Problem with RootNFS

I've found that something is wrong with rootnfs code:
I run kernel as follows:

loadlin vmlinuz root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=

IP Number of computer I run is obtained by BOOTP, from Netware server.
It is ok. Kernel says that it got IP number and IP of gateway, and...
it tries to make NFS connection to Netware server instead of that given
as parameter.
Is it a bug or feature ?. How can I make kernel to mount root by
NFS from ?
