[PPC] Arch tries to boot from a root partition on NFS

I just finished installing Arch on my Powerbook G4 when during boot it hangs trying to boot off of a root partition via NFS.  I set my root partition as /dev/sda4 during the install process and didn't configure anything for a remote root partition.  The error that I get is:

Root-NFS: no NFS server address
VFS: Unabled to mount root fs via NFS, trying floppy.
VFS: Insert root floppy and press ENTER

When I press the enter button nothing happens, I followed the installation guide on the Arch wiki Install Arch Linux PPC, I had to use the older method because the newer /arch/setup failed to see me hard drive even though mac-fdisk could see it.
