I think you've forgotten to include Ext2 (or Ext3, ReiserFS, depending on which one you use) filesystem support or compiled it as a module. Root filesystem type MUST be compiled into kernel, without this it won't work.
You should run your old kernel and compile again.

I edited your thread title since supposedly giving the title of the thread with an email address no way helps members determine if they can help you unless they open your thread and read it.

Lets try to make decent and help thread titles. Thanks.
