Thanks Thomas.. sorry I typed the mirror wrong I created it in 

The thing is I compiled my own kernel with pretty much all options compiled 
in static as per the docs and put the new kernel.deb into the proper 
location and did the make-fai-nfsroot -K opetion and then rebuilt the cd and 
then the same problem again.

thanks alot I will keep trying.
