    Passing partition table to kernel


    Does anyone know of anyway of passing the partition table to the kernel at boot time instead of it attempting to read it from the first sector of the disk? Is there some kernel argument that you can specify in your bootloader program that would do this? For example:

    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=LABEL=/ partitionTable=*partition number*,*first sector*,*last sector*

    Sorry I'm not answering your question, but could you please refrain from cross-posting? Its against forum rules. This is where the post should be, you also have it in the debian and redhat forums.
