So the kernel is booting fine now.. it is complaining about the root
filesystem now.  A few lines above the message you pasted, it should
say something like "VFS: mounted root filesystem"... can you check that
message carefully to see that it is looking in the right place?  You
may have to adjust the "rootdev" parameter in nettrom to specify the correct
disk partition.
