I recently reinstalled BSP package and now during bootup it fails during the NFS portion.
Here's a snippet of the output. Does anybody have a suggestion?

IP-Config: Complete:
     device=eth0, addr=, mask=, gw=,
     host=, domain=, nis-domain=(none),
     bootserver=, rootserver=, rootpath=
Looking up port of RPC 100003/2 on

Please append a correct "root=" boot option; here are the available partitions:
