after kernel compilation reboot says mount : couldnot find filesystem '/dev/root'


I am trying to install a 2.6.34.11 kernel.

I just checked out fresh tar ball for linux-2.6.34.11.tar.bz2

and followed below steps for compilation

tar -xjvf linux-2.6.34.11.tar.bz2 -C /usr/src; cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.34.11
make menuconfig
make
make modules
make module_install
make install

after this I rebooted with the new image but it says

No volume groups found Volume group "VolGroup00" not found mount : couldnot find filesystem '/dev/root'

Can any1 please suggest me if I have missed any steps..

Here is my grub.conf details, and image for "(2.6.34.11)" is not booting properly as I mentioned
