linux kernel hangs without any error

Hi all,

I am using buildroot to build the linux kernel for my amd 32 bit board. I am using grub as the boot loader for this. After some work out I was able install grub and use it in the board. Now the boot loader works with out any problem. However kernel hangs without any error. I've attached this in pdf file. the kernel version i use is What could be the reason i'm stuck as there are no errors also posted. i also created initrd as mentioned in one of the website.

The initrd work well and a small linuxrc script was written for it. nd i am able to execute simple linux commands in files present in initrd. however the real file system doesn't work. the files used by the initrd are the same as present in the real file system which is generated by buildroot. And i'm using ext2 filesystem generated by buildroot and converting to ext3 because linux doesn't recognize ext2. Kindly help. Am i missing any setting in the linux kernel config file? I am not able to attach any file or post the config file here!
