Bug#291573: Kernel panic on reboot after apt-get upgrade

Package: debian-installer

As I remember (but not sure) the initial installation was by a sarge-i386-netinst.iso from around 2004-06-07.

Boot via Lilo from ext3 on LVM (not sure) on hda6.

Now after an apt-get upgrade on 2005-01-19 (last upgrades maybe months away) the installation gets Kernel panic during boot.

NET: Registerd protocol family 20
ACPI: (supports S0 S1 S4 S5)
RAMDISK: Couldn't find valid RAM disk image starting at 0.
VFS: Cannot open root device "fe00" or unknown-block(254,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(254,0)

As this is a seldomly used test machine, I can leave it untouched for some days, to provide additional information. But I would need some hints or advice, as my attempt to get more information via a Knoppix-CD failed (unable to automount).
