Bug#407495: Linux 2.6.18-686 serious boot problem in multi-user-mode, single-user boots without problems. (Kernel or scripts in initrd?)

at first: thank you very much for your help. It works fine and I'm
running the new Kernel. :D 

If anyone experiences a simlilar problem: The important part of
the /boot/grub/menu.lst is:

title Booting 2.6.18-3 with Disklabel
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-3-686 kopt=/dev/disk/by-label/root
 	root=/dev/disk/by-label/root ro 
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.18-3-686
The line following "kernel" is a single line. I gave my root
filesystem /dev/hda3 the label with "e2label /dev/hda3 root".

This seems to be correct.

Important additional information:

The problem isn't as complex and wired as I thought at first. It occurs
in single user mode too. I was so confused that I booted the older
kernel in recovery mode, and as a result of this, I was confused even
more. There is not anything so easy that I can't do it wrong...
