You could check that you root partition is the same it was before kernel 
Maybe sata<->ide swapping was triggered by the kernel upgrade.
Edit you grub menu and check if changing hda to sda or sda to hda inthe kernel 
boot options.
You can do this inside grub : just hit "esc" to go into the menu and "e" to 
edit the menu item you want to boot from.
Then select the line like:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-4-686-smp root=/dev/sda3 ro quiet splash vga=788
and change sda3<->hda3.
Hope this helps!
