      If some one had complied a custom kernel with success, please send me
      the .config file.

      Thanks

        Maybe you've solved the problem by now, but did you try giving the
        correct "root=" option as it says above?

        My .config isn't necessarily going to do you any good, but I can send
        it to you if you really want. Do you have the right filesystems
        compiled into your kernel (not as modules) or them included in an
        initrd file?

          Note that if you're not using an initrd, you will need to compile
          support for your ide chipset into your kernel, and ditto for your file
          system.
