Since you are using a ramdisk, it would be helpful if you could post the
contents of the loadmodules file on the ramdisk itself. You are most
likely missing some modules needed to mount the filesystem since (3,1)
is hda1.

]$ mount -o loop /boot/initrd-xxx  /mnt/tmp
]$ cat /mnt/tmp/loadmodules

lspci may also help.

What kernel are you currently running? Any special file system stuff
like RAID or SATA?
