Solved!

The problem appears to have been because update-initramfs failed when installing the new kernel.
This was because I'd had issues with the udev rules that were installed after upgrading to 8.04 so I'd replaced /etc/udev/rules.d with my backup.

Replacing the necessary files and running "update-initramfs -k
2.6.24-17-generic -c" solved the problem.

Evidently I need to investigate the issues I have with udev rules and
raise a bug for them instead.
