I kinda have a problem,
I have compiled now 4 kernel's and the first two kernel's got stuck on
this message at boot.
VFS: Cannot open root device "hda1" or unknown-block(3,1)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Sounds like you're making a kernel with no initrd and all the
filesystems are modules. initrd is a pain in the butt, just compile
the filesystems you need at boot time right into the kernel.

Forgot to say that i am using make-kpkg then i am transfering it to my
laptop to then installing the kernel.
I just tried another 3times and this time i made sure i made the
filesystems in the kernel and not modules, but i still got the same error.
Is there a way i can use make-kpkg to make a initrd as the 2.6.7
(original kernel) has one but the one i keep trying to make is missing,
is that the problem ? how would i make one and transfer it to the laptop...
