[Gllug] compiling kernel inside a VM

I hope somebody can help me. I am trying to compile the latest kernel
( from kernel.org) inside a vmware virtual machine. I have not
changed any kernel settings from default (the VM is x86 32 bit, but
running on x86-64 machine). The kernel compile works fine. I had a problem
initially with make modules_install which seemed to be resolved by copying
a directory in /var/lib/dkms. However now when I reboot the machine and
select the newly built kernel, it fails straight away saying it cant find
the root filesystem.

Any ideas ?
