(hd0,5) is the partition where the /boot folder is. This also happens to be the root filesystem.
If you have a paritition that has the kernel in it then it would be like this..
Here is the root filesystem..
This is where the root filesystem is. They are not always nor do they need to be in the same place as this one is.
this is the first partition on the primary master being used as a boot partition.
this is the second partition on the primary slave where the filesystem is.
kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz root=/dev/hdb2
In this case the fstab my have this...
/dev/hda1 /boot ext3 defaults 0 0
so that's your /boot partition where the kernel is, the root filesystem is in /dev/hdb2
For yours if the kerel is in /dev/hda1 and the filesystem is /dev/hda2...
kernel (hd0,0)/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2
If you have it correct then maybe you did not add your filesystem support to the kernel.
