kgdb over ethernet

I've finally compiled 2.6.30 kernel with kgdb over ethernet support.
I thought the kernel would wait while booting for a remote connection through kgdb, but actually it boots till the end and Gnome starts.
What are the parameters should I give in the grub to make kgdb work ?
thanks for your help

Where did you find kgdboe

I don't know if you're still out there, but I've looked everywhere for the source to kgdboe so that I can install it on our Ubuntu kernel. If you know where you found it, I'd appreciate a pointer.
