I have been trying to setup a diskless Linux cluster using Fedora 16. The boot server is working but I have run into a kernel error with my bzImage version 3.1.7. See the text below I get for kernel panic.
md: ... autorun DONE.
RAMDISK: gzip image found at block 0
EXT4-fs (ram0): couldn't mount as ext3 due to feature incompatabilities
EXT4-fs (ram0): mounting ext2 file system using the ext4 subsystem
EXT4-fs (ram0): mounted filesystem without journal. Opts: (null)
VFS: mounted root (ext2 filesystem) on device 1:0.

Kernel panic - not syncing: No inti found. Try passing init= option to kernel. See Linux Documentation/init.txt for guidance.

panic occured, switched back to text console
Here are the parameters passed to the kernel during boot.
APPEND initrd=rootfs2.gz root=/dev/ram rw ip=192.168.0.254:192.168.0.2:192.168.0.1:255.255.255.0:llama0:eth0:off
I'm not really sure how to solve this problem it is a bit beyond me. I have attached my kernel configuration file if that is the problem.
