I don't think that is a kernel problem. I've seen those errors with 2.6

same as for the
Sounds like you could just boot an install disk or an old kernel, open a
shell, fsck, then lilo.
Just make sure your new kernel lists /dev/ide/host?/bus? the same so
your lilo root= is
pointing to the disk you think it is.

I get this at boot with 2.6.0-test[3,4]:

Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(3,65)
Before this, kernel seems to detect hard disks just fine.
This system boots fine with 2.2 and 2.4 kernels. I have tried setting
root=/dev/hdb1 and rootfstype=ext2 (hdb1 is ext2) but this doesn't help.
Config below. Is something missing?
Thanks a lot for suggestions,
