After further examination, it appears that in addition to rsyslog, a
couple of other things are failing with messages relating to trying to
find things in /proc.

So, it's not surprising that in a chroot there is no /proc, and
rsyslog config on my host machine references /proc/kmsg.

Is it possible that this is basically a successful bootstrap of the
NFSROOT, with errors that can be ignored, or are these perhaps
examples of reasons why FAI was not included in Lucid?
