One cannot use the root=LABEL or root=UUID construct on
a line
by itself. Example:

image = vmlinuz
label = Linux-test
initrd = initrd
root=UUID=04b95289-1ac6-4295-b4f3-ea25dac97fdc "

This results in a parse error when elilo is run at boot.

Instead you must imbed it in an "append" line, like so:

image = vmlinuz
label = Linux-test
initrd = initrd
appen =
"root=UUID=04b95289-1ac6-4295-b4f3-ea25dac97fdc "
