I got that when I had the wrong startup ram disk (or ram filesystem)

Boot your system with the old kernel and run:
mkinitramfs -o /boot/initrd.img-2.6.18-jaume 2.6.18-jaume

(on older systems it will be mkinitrd instead)

Then make sure /boot/grub/menu points to this initrd in the proper
section (or edit lilo.cof and run lilo if that
is your system)
