new kernel compile problem

I compiled the newest stable kernel, in debian to get a real time kernel.First problem I had was it waiting on root file system and never booting..noticing mentions of sda as it was booting..I edited my grub menu.lst and fstab and changed /dev/hda1 and /dev/hda5 to /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda5.On boot it got past the root file system error..but it now has problem finding "resume file system on /dev/hda5" gives me option to type in entering /dev/sda5 allows it to complete boot.Where do i find the file to edit change resume file system from /dev/hda5 to /dev/sda5??

grep -Hr "/dev/hda5" /etc

That might find it.
