Did you write the table to the disk? Sometimes you have to reboot the system
before it recognises the new partition table. This happens if a partition on
that disk is mounted, or you have an old fdisk which doesn't resync the table.

Where did you get that? about 2/3 of the way through the config? with lots
of other partition table support type bits?
does your /etc/fstab have the correct entry for / ?
the kernel should say error mounting root on ... the ... is important. It
tells you what device it's trying to mount / on. eg sda1, sdb2 etc
