Problems mounting NFS

Hey All,

I'm getting kernel panics all the time regarding the NFS-mount and I
cant make sense of it. Here is what the panic says:

Loading kernel/fs/reiserfs/reiserfs.ko
error: not found
[: open: unexpected operator
Mounting root /dev/nfs
Usage: mount [-r] [-w] [-o options] [-t type] devive directory
umount2: Device or resource busy
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

I would guess that 'mount' doesn't get its parameters properly but I
really dont know where I'm doing a mistake and I cant find anything in
the postings. I think I'm doing the simplest case by booting via floppy
and getting the kernel via tftpboot. Here my menu.lst I'm using with GRUB:

color white/blue black/light-gray
default 0
timeout 8
framebuffer 1

title boot via NFS
      ifconfig --address= --mask=
      root (nd)
      kernel (nd)/vmlinuz root=/dev/nfs  rw
nfsroot= ip=
      initrd (nd)/initr

I'd appreciate every kind of help here!
