Package: linux-image-2.6.21-2-686
Version: 2.6.21-5
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

On boot if kernel 2.6.21-2 is selected either for 486 or 686
architecture than system hangs on 
"Begin: Waiting for root filesystem"
I believe this is right after kernel has inited. Is this correct?

Kernel - 2.6.18 boots normally.

Please suggest some tests so I can bring more specific info to this bug

On boot BIOS says system is an intel
Celeron 1700.
RAM is  753664 bytes + 32768 shared

2 ide hard drives, 1 creative cdr drive
1 AGP video, 1 PCI video

Thank you.
