	Not yet. This time without dope in ttyLv0 the booting log is:

proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
Starting udevd:  /sbin/udevd --daemon
error initializing netlink socket
Triggering udev events:  /sbin/udevtrigger
Adding 491864k swap on /dev/hda1.  Priority:-1 extents:1 across:491864k
Setting system time from the hardware clock (localtime).
Testing root filesystem status:  read-write filesystem

*** ERROR: Root partition has already been mounted read-write. Cannot check!

For filesystem checking to work properly, your system must initially mount
the root partition as read only. Please modify your kernel with 'rdev' so that
it does this. If you're booting with LILO, add a line:


to the Linux type 'lilo' to reinstall it.

If you boot from a kernel on a floppy disk, put it in the drive and type:
   rdev -R /dev/fd0 1

If you boot from a bootdisk, or with Loadlin, you can add the 'ro' flag.

This will fix the problem *AND* eliminate this annoying message
Press ENTER to continue.

	But now I can't use keyboard. I have tried to make l4linux with keyboard 
module and without keyboard module twice. I can't still use keyboard, too.
	What is the matter?
