Which came first...the chicken or the egg?
When loading the kernel thru lilo or loadlin,
one of the parameters is the device path of
where to mount root (eg /dev/hda1). Question is,
how does it make sense of the file path since the file
system does not exist yet and all it understands
is raw sectors?
