Some people in this list may be confusing, so let me summarize my boot

I am using JS20 (884241X) to run XenPPC, which is booted from local disk
through the /etc/yaboot.conf like this.

      # header section
      partition = 2
      timeout = 600
      default = xen
      # image section
      image = /boot/vmlinux
          label = linux
          root = /dev/hda3
          append = " quiet sysrq=1 insmod=sym53c8xx insmod=ipr"
          initrd = /boot/initrd
      # kawatiya 2006/08/24
      image = /boot/xen-3.0-unstable
          label = xen
          append = "xen -- root=/dev/hda3 sysrq=1 insmod=sym53c8xx

However, I have several boot problems with recent versions.

1. I could not boot our internal version which is a little bit old version,
but contains the SMP patch.
   It failed like this.

reserved, 1240k data,

      I know this is caused by the SMP patch.

2. When I reverted xen/arch/powerpc/setup.c to non-SMP version, I
encountered another problem.
      All bugs added by David S. Miller <davem@redhat.com>
      Root-NFS: No NFS server available, giving up.
      VFS: Unable to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.
      VFS: Cannot open root device "<NULL>" or unknown-block(2,0)
      Please append a correct "root=" boot option
      Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on
       <0>Rebooting in 180 seconds..

      It seems that boot parameters (root=/dev/hda3) is not passed to dom0

3. I also cannot boot the official XenPPC in XenSource, which I already
      Welcome to yaboot version 10.1.14-r716.SuSE
      booted from '/ht/[EMAIL PROTECTED],1/[EMAIL PROTECTED]'
      Enter "help" to get some basic usage information
      boot: xen
      Please wait, loading kernel...
      Can't find a loadable segment !

      I think this is related to the boot wrapper removal.
