Kernel recompile issues with file system

Hey, i just recompiled my kernel 2.4.31 with SMP support... its the only thing i changed was the processor type to p3 and added SMP support...
when i rebooted i have all sorts of errors
for some reason it says could not find reiserfs on hda1

i do have ext2 filesystem on there, how do i fix this

when i boot my old kernel, it looks for the ext2 filesystem and boots fine,

i cant understand whats going on because the only thing i changed was the cpu type and SMP

Was this using the same source tree and config file as your old kernel that works to mount the drives?

yeah,.im pretty sure, i used the config that came with slackware 10.2 when i installed it

so i just ran
make menuconfig
Changed processors to pentium 3
then i checked on SMP

then left, and ran make dep
then make bzImage
then mv /bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.31-smp
cp /boot/
then ln -sf /boot/
then did the lilo stuff so i could boot me prev kernel
then rebooted
