pivot_root problem on RH7.2



Hello,

	I'm new in ext3. I installed RH7.2 with ext3. For a short time it
worked properly, but when I compiled the linux kernel (2.4.9-13) from RH
package, the old kernel didn't boot again (I didn't change anything with
the old binary).
	I downloaded kernel 2.4.14 and ext3 patch for this version. After
the compilation and installation I rebooted the system. I got answer
something similar:
error: mount 6
and something with pivot_root.

I would like to know what do I need to do for making ext3 filesystem
working with new kernel. (initrd? - why?). I compiled ext3 into the
kernel, is this OK?

	I can boot with an older kernel (2.4.9-13) from floppy disk (this
is the SAME binary I have on the hard drive).


	Thank you in advance,
		Thomas Jalsovsky

p.s.: i686 (iPentiumIII 800,128MB), RedHat 7.2 (plus RawHide upgrade),
kernel 2.4.14
