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
