-If you setup your ''/boot/grub/grub.conf'' with the value you would assume for ''root='', you will probably be wrong.  Whether you use genkernel or build your kernel manually, the ''root='' portion of your "kernel" line should be ''root=/dev/cciss!c0d0p3'' and **NOT** ''root=/dev/cciss/c0d0p3'' I have no clue why this is, but it seems to be some oddity of the driver.  This will cause your bootup to fail if this is not set correctly in ''/boot/grub/grub.conf''.+If you setup your ''/boot/grub/grub.conf'' with the value you would assume for ''root='', you will probably be wrong.  Whether you use genkernel or build your kernel manually, the ''root='' portion of your "kernel" line should be ''root=/dev/cciss!c0d0p3'' and **NOT** ''root=/dev/cciss/c0d0p3'' as you would expect.  I have no clue why this is, but it seems to be some oddity of the driver.  This will cause your bootup to fail if this is not set correctly in ''/boot/grub/grub.conf''.
