It seems you haven't got the IDE driver linked in to the kernel. It
tries to auto-load it, which fails because the root fs is not mounted.

Are you sure rebooting *did* work *just before* you ran dselect, or
is there any chance you already had a kernel configured that didn't
contain the IDE driver?
