Seems more likely that when the OP recompiled his kernel he neglexted to build in support for his particular type of hard drive and filesystem. These are usually compiled as modules in systems like Ubuntu, but then the OP has to create the correct initial ram disk for the kernel to load the modules from at boot time (this is usually done with mkinitrd - at least on systems I am most familiar with).
