I had the same problem with my upgrade to 2.6.8.
At first the kernel didn't boot at all, but after i
did mkinitrd and added the initrd image to grub menu.lst I had the same results as you had written.
As it turned out, I forgot to compile ext3 support into the kernel, which is needed if you have ext3 as the root fs (/).
Hope this helps someone.
