I'll give that a try.

Right now I've been putting in echo statements to
track what get executed in linuxrc.  I've also been
putting in things like 'ls /dev' to see what comes up
and when.  Hmmm  I'll try testing manually tonight and
maybe put in a 'ps -ef' before doing the pivot_root. 
That may give me some idea what's hanging things. 
Also for anyone interested, there is some
documentation on linuxrc at
www.ibiblio.org/peanut/initrd$.txt  I'll be looking
over it tonight and try to see what I've been missing.
