I didn't really see anything I have missed..

"Cannot open root device 'mapper/main-root' or unknown-block (0,0)"

If it helps, this is my LVM-setup:
/dev/hda1, 512MB, ext3, mounted at /boot
/dev/hda2, 55GB, LVM (main)
root, 12GB, ext3, mounted at /
home, 44GB, reiserfs, mounted at /home
tmp, 512MB, ext3, mounted at /tmp
I tried to recreate the initrd-image using mkinitrd (it says that volume
group "main" is found), but still it doesn't boot.
Any more suggestions? my initrd-file is about half the size of the
2.6.16 one, but i guess thats just because I have less modules?
