[vox-tech] grub not finding root partition



New install.

Grub seems to work for my Debian kernels:

   title		Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.8-2-686 
   root		(hd1,0)
   kernel		/vmlinuz-2.6.8-2-686 root=/dev/hda6 ro 
   initrd		/initrd.img-2.6.8-2-686
   savedefault
   boot

But not for a home compiled kernel:

   title		Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.6.11
   root		(hd1,0)
   kernel		/vmlinuz-2.6.11 root=/dev/hda6 ro 
   savedefault
   boot

When I try to boot 2.6.11, the kernel can't find the root filesystem and
panics.

I don't know grub very well -- anyone have a guess what's going on?

Thanks,
Pete
