You would need to go to www.apt-get.org
and get a line for at least the module-init-tools package to be installed along with whatever else has changed to allow you to boot the new kernel you should add this to your /etc/fstab.
## Needed for kernel 2.6
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
And then mkdir /sys
as root to create the mount point for the new sysfs that is need for a 2.6 kernel.
