Breezy iBook install fails to boot (kernel panic - unable to mount root)

After playing around with the Live CD I just tried installing the Breezy
preview on my iBook. The install went fine but at reboot I get the old
"Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on
Unfortunately I can't actually see what is going wrong there. My
yaboot.conf looks good and all the kernel images are there (default
install). The only thing I can think of is that my root is XFS (problem?).
My partition layout looks like:
/dev/hda1 Apple_partition_map Apple 63 @ 1 ( 31.5k) Partition map
/dev/hda2 Apple_Bootstrap yaboot 1954 @ 96730233 (977.0k) NewWorld bootblock
/dev/hda3 Apple_HFS Untitled 96468025 @ 262208 ( 46.0G) HFS
/dev/hda4 Apple_UNIX_SVR2 Ubuntu 20478053 @ 96732187 ( 9.8G) Linux native
/dev/hda5 Apple_Free Extra 262144 @ 64 (128.0M) Free space
device=/pci at f4000000/ata-6 at d/disk at 0:
Which seems to be fine... I'm baffled.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
