For my system adding rootdelay=90 solve the problem

after adding in the menu.lst in the kernel line
have you update grub ?
You must make it for change the boot option ( apply the change)

in a terminal
sudo update-grub

 i have an other computer which the system( a few older)

Motherboard Asus a7n8x-x 
chipset fsb (northbridge) nvidia force2

I have  a problem like your,(see attached dmseg/kernel.log)  for boot
ubuntu 8.10 intrepid ibex kernel 2-6-27-7

boot options without quiet splash solve the problem
