Unhappy Problem with kernel 2.6.5 - missing /dev/hda


After I compiled my brand new kernel 2.6.5 , after rebooting I received following message:
fsck.ext3: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/hda2 (thats partition with my root sysytem)
blah, blah, blah ....
fsck failed. Pease repair manually and reboot.

blah ,blah, blah .. .

give root password for maintenance
(or type CONTROL-D for normal startup):

ok.

so it seems that system cannot remount root device in rw mode
if I use rescue Debian disk with kernel 2.4 with following parameter root=/dev/hda2 everything seems to work fine

Any suggestions ???

Did you compile ext3 file system support as part of the new kernel or as a module? It needs to be in the kernel, not a module.

If it helps, here is part of my lilo.conf file
Code:
image=/boot/vmlinuz
	label="linux"
	root=/dev/hdb1
	initrd=/boot/initrd.img
	append="devfs=mount hdd=ide-scsi acpi=off quiet"
	vga=788
	read-only
Also, try running /sbin/lilo as well just to make sure everything is OK.

Yes - I did it - I used same config script as on my home computer - but with this one I do have a problem, at home not at all...
The Difference is that at home I have one big root partition ext3 and no other (and swap of course) and on that f@#!#*g comp. I made three:
/dev/hda1 - /boot
/dev/hda2 - /
/dev/hda3 - swap
/dev/hdb1 - /home

I 've got 2 disks as U see ...

maybe some problem with System.map or MBR - as I ssid before - I can mount from rescue cd-rom root file system from /dev/hda2 but not from normal booting procedure ...
Any Idea ???
