03 is the major number for hda.  03:01 is /dev/hda1.

The request module message indicates that you don't have a device driver for 
hda1which means that you haven't loaded ide-disk, or you didn't load 
ide-probe-mod before ide-disk from your initrd.

One possible cause for this is that you loaded an initrd from a different 
kernel version and therefore the initrd couldn't load a module.

That part is being accepted.

Does your kernel-img.conf match mine?
rjc@lyta:/tmp$ cat /etc/kernel-img.conf

PS I've CC'd this to debian-user as it's not an ISP issue.
