Yes, I was on this way: initrd.
But when compiled the new kernel with --initrd parameter, it seems that the initrd isn't in the package.
Also, I ran the mkinitrd -o output, and the command doesn't create the output file and doesn't report me any mistakes.
So, any suggestions about how to create this initrd?
Very thanks for your help.

I've tried to install Debian Sarge in a Dell PowerEdge 1425. The CD doesn't recognize the SCSI adapter (AIC), but I've found one ISO which contains the driver needed (http://wiki.osuosl.org/display/LNX/Debian+on+Dell+Servers).
After successfully installed, the system doesn't have support to iptables. So, recompiled the kernel and was expecting to work.
But the system boots no longer. It gave me a kernel panic message, unable to mount root partition (/dev/sda1) or 08:00. This partition, /dev/sda1, is correct.
did you build/install/use initrd? I guess you're missing your SCSI card
driver. It may be located on initrd.
do you have the whole error message?
I followed the instructions in the site I've mentioned above to recompile the kernel, but this problem drove me crazy. I copied the config file available on the site and one at /boot folder to /usr/src/KERNEL_VERSION/.config, changed nothing, compiled and the system still doesn't working.
