Kernel for linuxbios

I add the console support and there is output. Thanks.
My machine has no disks and I need initrd. So I took initrd from
Thinstation and build the elf file by the command :
./objdir/sbin/mkelfImage -t bzImage-i386 --kernel=/home/sagivy/bzImage
--command-line="rw console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/ram0"
and I got panic message:
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid RAM disk image starting at 0.
Freeing initrd memory: 11922k freed
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 01:00
I also had ram disk support.

No, all Linux kernels work fine.

No. No patches needed at all.

The biggest problem is the low availability of crystal balls nowadays ;)
Maybe you did not compile your kernel with serial console support or did
not enable serial console on the command line?
