Thank you for the help in answering the puzzle, but how is a
semi-i-literate person able to translate this into a command/procedure
that will achieve such a thing?  IOW, I am clueless at this point of
what a kernel cmdline is.  I suspect it is a parameter in some file that
builds up the kernel during boot ... but where is it and how do I add
this command/parameter in it?

Thank you again

PS  During vacation time I have promissed to give linux-from-scratch a
try, just to understand the necessary steps that build up the system.
