AW: Building kernel

I managed to compile the kernel, doing the following steps:
- I've downloaded the source: kernel-source-2.4.20-ben5_10.00.Custom_all.deb
- I've unpacked the source to /usr/src/linux
- Then I've copied the .config file from
  http://mega.ist.utl.pt/~mmsf/ibook.html to /usr/src/linux
- Finally I've compiled it the debian way with "make-dpkg kernel_image" and
  installed it with "dpkg -i kernel... .deb"

On the next reboot, I got the following error:

Checking root filesystem...
fsck 1.30-WIP (30-Sept-2002)
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/hda11
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2
filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2
filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock
is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
   e2fsck -b 8193 <device>

fsck failed. Please repair manually and reboot

I have no idea how to solve this. By the way: the precompiled version of
benh5 works well, except the sleep mode (see my previous post "Problems with
pmu/display"). That's why I wanted to compile it by myself...

O that would be fine!

Thank you very much for your help!
