ii  kernel-image-2 2.6.8-16sarge6 Linux kernel image for version 2.6.8
on 386.

I am using sarge and I have installded backport of linux image 2.6.18.
When I boot with kernel 2.6.8 it's all ok.
When I boot with kernel 2.6.18 it says that it can't find volume group
vg00 and waiting for root filesystem.
The creation of initrd with kernel 2.6.18 is automatic, I'have tried
also update-initarmfs, reboot but the system hangs with the above
If you try to install etch using one boot partition and lvm for the
remaining disk space you'll see that it don't boot.
