Angry unknown partition table while testing kernel 2.6.0

Yo, I've got problem with loading new kernel 2.6.0 when on my old 2.4.23 works ok.
I have these errors while loading kernel 2.6.0:

[B]hda: unknown partition table [B]
VFS: Cannot open root device "301" or hda1
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on hda1

my root partition /dev/hda1 is reiserfs (compiled directly into kernel). I tried to add some IDE options in kernel configuration but it's still the same.
