So if I get a VFS error along the lines of "VFS: Can't mount root
unknown-block(9,1)" and it panics, what could the cause be?

I realize this is /dev/md1, and I've built the initrd with md-mod and
sata_nv, and ext3 is built in, but it's almost like it's ignoring the
linuxrc in the initrd. If I chroot to it and run /bin/nash /linuxrc,
it does print my echo statements.

How can I debug this or capture the full output to analyze?

Thanks again,
Alex
