I installed today's (sept 20, 2006) rawhide on an lpar/pseries, power5.
After installing, system rebooted. During reboot, received the
usbcore: registered new driver hiddev
usbcore: registered new driver usbhid
drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: v2.6:USB HID core driver
mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice

VFS: Cannot open root device "sda5" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Is it because it is looking for "sda5", instead of "/dev/sda5"?
/dev/sda5 is my root partition.
This also happened with yesterday's rawhide.
