In my board I had Linux 2.6.27 it works correctly with U-Boot 1.2, I try
now to mount 2.6.32.denx with ELDK root file system with U-Boot 1.2 that I
already configured,

Yes I verified, I have console, null, zero and much other nodes, I'm
blocked from yesterday in this part, when I run my script in minicom of
NFS, the Booting Image appears the .dtb follows and just after it hangs.

Should I update the root file system, perhaps something was delete, if
it's a good idea how can have my root file system in ELDK without removing
ELDK and reinstall?
