I had this problem also when installing xen 3.0.x on a IBM xSeries
server, the issue was that when i installed debian with the 2.4
kernel, it saw the SATA hard drive as /dev/hdX, where as the 2.6 xen
kernel saw it as /dev/sdX. Once i changed the grub menu.lst file from:

module      /boot/xen-linux- root=/dev/hda1 ro


module      /boot/xen-linux- root=/dev/sda1 ro

it worked fine. Here is the full grub kernel options BTW:

title       Xen 3.0.0 - Linux
kernel      /boot/xen-3.0.1.gz dom0_mem=262144
module      /boot/xen-linux- root=/dev/sda1 ro
module      /boot/xen-modules-

Dont know if this is the same issue for you, but this is how i got it working.
