How to use devfs and udev with same lilo and fstab?

I have built a 26132-custom kernel and need to understand what impact it has on present kernels using lilo and devfs nomenclature.

I understand that the 2.6.13 kernels are Udev and that Udev needs modified fstab but that lilo doesn't require the boot append statement but no comment regarding the need or lack of need for the root= entry in Udev.

Are the kernels compatible with kernel 2.6.10?

You'll always need the root= entry. I'm not sure what you mean by "compatible with kernel 2.6.10" - you've rolled your own 2.6.13.2, which has config options that were not available in 2.6.10. Presumably you have also changed some config options. If you're looking for the facility to choose which kernel to use at boot-time, then you should be ok, as long as you're happy with your custom kernel.

tomk;

Right on...system seems compatible with lilo image root=/dev/hda3 and can select label for this new kernel in boot.

Its up and running with custom change.

Thanks for reply.
