My turn to be sorry:-), i run linux without hard drive nor nfs.

Yes, in fact on my board, the zvmlinux is loaded via a backpannel
and uses a RAM file system as root file system (the ram file system code
has been modified to get its image from a section in the vmlinux image)

I can do nothing for your ata-disk or nfs, but i would be pleased to help
