Did you compile support for the filesystem type of your root partition into the kernel? If not, then you can experience errors such as the one you posted. Also make sure that your boot loader entry is correct.

One thing you have to check is whether you compiled in support for your network card into the new kernel.

Boot using a liveCD, that will allow you to connect to the network without the problems that you are having. Then, find out what modules it loaded and what configuration it had for the kernel. Add what you are missing either as loadable modules or built into the kernel, and try again.
