Ah, but this is different from what you said before.

Do I understand correctly that you have a Linux 2.6.27 kernel that
works fine with the root file system over NFS, and then there is
another 2.6.32 kernel which does not not work when using the same root
file system from the same server?

In this case the problem is obviously not with the root file system,
but with your new kernel.

"just after it hangs?" Before, you wrote you saw a "Unable open an
initial console" error message, which can only come after a _lot_ of
other kernel boot messages - assuming you have working console support
in your kernel at all.

If you fear that the root file system might be corrupted, you have to
reinstall the ELDK.

But if the same root file system works with your older Linux 2.6.27
kernel then you can be pretty sure that the problem is not with the
root file system but with your new kernel instead.
