Hmm... Where is a list of commandline params? I recently
had to specify the parameters for someone's HD, finally
found the information in the LILO configs. Then, they had
an ethernet card on a strange address (SMC Ultra on 360, it tests
340, 380... not good) And even though I went in all the core
setup files, I couldn't figure out what the heck to send it.
(and when I did, it was ignored.. suprise?)

Changing parametrs like addresses w/o a recompile is a _GOOD_ thing,
but it is the devil itself to find an actual list of what commands
are supported.

I remember this being discussed a month or so ago, but that degraded
into another mount root ro or rw debate. ack!
