I don't think 2.4.x stock knows about root=LABEL=whatever in grub, or maybe
even in /etc/fstab.  (Non-root file systems in /etc/fstab are probably OK,
it's just the root that's special right now).  Instead, switch back to
root=/dev/sda6 or whatever it is, both in grub and in /etc/fstab, and remake
your initrd.
