Question kernel panic after yum upgrade

I need to upgrade to kernel 2.6.17. I did a yum upgrade. My old kernel is 2.6.16, the new one is 2.6.17. When I boot into 2.6.17 the logical volumes are not found and I get a kernel panic.

Boot errors -

Loading jbd.ko module
Loading dm..... modules
Making device-mapper control node
Scanning Logical Volumes
No Volume Groups found
Activating Logical Volumes
Volume Group "VolumeGroup00" not found
creating root device
mount: error 6 mounting ext3
error opening /dev/console

I download source and compiled it using the 2.6.16 .config as a basis of the congiruration. It compiled and installed correctly but gives the same error. I then configured the .17.14 kernel with everything (all SCSI, ext3, etc.) built into the kernel. Same problem.

The 2.6.16 kernel still boots. I compared the initrd files of the .16 and .17 kernels and the .17 kernel does not include any scsi modules. I compared the config files for the two and they're basically the same.

System information (I'm not sure what should be included here)

dualcore Intel CPU 2.80GHz
