agreed. most excellent eyes ovidiu, i totally overlooked it the first time i read through this message. :) rodrigo, please change the "root" and "append" param values from:
>> root = /dev/sda1 >> append="root=/dev/sda1"
to root = /dev/sda3 append="root=/dev/sda3" and see if that fixes the current hang up. good luck
