VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

This is different error, it means support for your HDD controller is missing.

Hey Emerson. I've got the kernel working, but I have a few other issues that I'm talking about here like my Vodafone app not starting up. Feel free to PLEASE check it out. lol

I've changed my kernel to a even newer one that had a great how to here and it even sorted out my sound. Kernel 2.6.24-7-generic

I've run the modprobe and ls command but there is only a USB1 and USB2 device before and after running it.

Also, the Vodafone app that I use for my USB modem from home still doesn't start up with the new kernel when the modem is plugged in.

And lsusb doesn't return anything.

Do you mean ttyUSB1 and ttyUSB2? Then maybe that's it (with new kernel usbserial should load at boot)? Did you run lsmod? Too bad I'm not standing behind you and looking over your shoulder. I do not have such an hardware myself and I have no further clues.
What do you mean by lsusb returns nothing? lsusb displays the USB devices in your system, if a device is included in usbid database then it adds also the name. You may want to update your usbid database.
Start your Vodafone app from terminal, any error messages?

Yes. I meant ttyUSB. The code for the card is actually 413c:8140.

With the switch off:

crownambassador@Vista:~$ ls /dev/ttyUSB*
/dev/ttyUSB0  /dev/ttyUSB1
crownambassador@Vista:~$
And it's the same with the switch off.

I had to add a Hardy repository to add the kernel and then remove it afterwards. Then I had to add the repository again to update udev in ordre to get lsusb to work.

8140 is Bluetooth, the switch is obviously for bluetooth then ... I suspect those two ttyUSB devices belong to your 3G device, exactly as duuri said.
Execute sudo tail -f /var/log/messages in a terminal when starting Vodafone app, maybe something shows up.
Sorry, I've got to go right now. Will be back later.

Hey comprookie,

I just want to check if you know that we're talking about to problems here? Getting the embedded card to work and also my USB modem that has been working, but now the Vodafone app doesn't want to start with the modem attached?

Your modules list is way too long for a custom kernel ... do not see PPP support though ... did you build it into kernel?

comprookie, this is what I got in the terminal:

Code:
crownambassador@Vista:~$ vodafone-mobile-connect-card-driver-for-linux

Failed to load application:
Emerson, the website I used, guided me to add a Hardy repository to download the kernel. No configuration. Is this what is called a stock kernel?

It then got me to remove the repository afterwards.

Dunno, LonelyTraveler. I'm probably too old to learn fancy ways to build a kernel. I do it simply, make menuconfig, I step thru every option, enable what I need, disable what I do not need, copy it manually to the /boot and add it to GRUB menu.lst.
You need PPP support to call out using a modem. So you better navigate to your kernel sources directory and do make menuconfig.

cd /usr/src/linux
sudo make menuconfig

Go to Device Drivers > Network device support

Enable PPP support,
in submenu add:
PPP support for async serial ports
PPP Deflate compression
PPP BSD-Compress compression

I don't have a usr/src/linux directory as I didn't install the source. Was a ( i guess ) stock kernel. Do you know how to see what the kernel supports? Thats without make menuconfig?
