They never do... The initrd always gets generated when a kernel package is

It's not exactly a kernel panic, but I know what you mean.

Well, not being able to find the root FS may well be because GRUB is not
configured correctly. When you are dropped into the debug shell, check the
contents of /dev and /dev/disk/by-uuid to see if your hard disk and root
partition are present.
But the fact that 2.6.30 does boot that far while 2.6.32 hangs earlier
probably means that there is a kernel problem with .32.
