root file system starting address in Nand flash info for kernel in embedded boards


How does the kernel know the start address of root file system in Nand flash of an embedded board to load after kernel was loaded and decompressed?
How do we have to give that information to the kernel as the start address of the rootfs will be different depending on the embedded boards? Do we have to do that in any configuration related files in kernel compiling or hard code in the kernel C files by editing?

Please help!
