and rebooted but now get a kernel panic with this kernel, along the
lines of
  pivot_root: No such file or directory
  /sbin/init: 432: cannot open dev/console: No such file
  Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempt to kill init!

Any ideas? My grub menu.lst (below) uses initrd and I'm wondering if

Yes. Try using root=/dev/sda2. 2.6er kernels and newer 2.4er kernels
are using the SCSI devices for disc access, not the IDE devices.

Shade and sweet water!
