No booting after kernel rebuild possible


using Debian 2.1 from the O'Reilly-Book "Learning Debian GNU/Linux",
I'm wondering about a problem after kernel rebuild, no starting
neither with the new kernel nor with the old kernel is possible:

Partition check:
request_module[block-major-8]: Root fs not mounted
VFS: Cannot open root device 08:01 (here: /dev/sda1)
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 08:01

A fsck ext2 /dev/sda1, done from the minisystem of the rescue/root
doesn't report any fs problems.
The /etc/fstab seems correct, too.

Did anyone observe this problem and knows how to get the machine
(Pentium 133MHz) booting up again?

Thank you for every useful hint,
