Hi Niall, hi everybody,

Thank you for the hint.

We use our own fai-kernel and after recompiling it with devfs and iso9660 
and after uncommenting the line:
in /usr/share/mkinitrd-cd/linuxrc

...the installation reached the following error:


/linuxrc: /sbin/prepareroot: not fond


and indeed, I can't find it either.
Do you know what's wrong?

Thanks in Advance

regards Thomas W.
