[Xen-users] mkinitrd - dev/xvda1: Unknown root device


I've installed XenExpress 3.2.
Within a DomU (Debian) I want to recompile the kernel. I installed the 
/kernel-xs-xen/kernel- from the 
The kernel and modules build well.
IPCopHost:~# mkinitrd -o /boot/initrd-2.6.16.xen-38 2.6.16.xen-38
/usr/sbin/mkinitrd: /dev/xvda1: Unknown root device
                    Please refer to the manual page.

IPCopHost:~# ls -alh /dev/xvd*
brw-rw----  1 root disk 202,  0 Apr 16 15:24 /dev/xvda
brw-rw----  1 root disk 202,  1 Apr 16 15:24 /dev/xvda1
brw-rw----  1 root disk 202, 16 Apr 16 15:24 /dev/xvdb
brw-rw----  1 root disk 202, 17 Apr 16 15:24 /dev/xvdb1

IPCopHost:~# cat /etc/fstab

/dev/xvdb1      none            swap    defaults        0       0

FileServer:/usr/src     /usr/src        nfs     rw,soft,intr,actimeo=0  0 0
FileServer:/srv/Service /mnt            nfs     rw,soft,intr,actimeo=0  0 0
I've apt-get install initrd-tools (V0.1.81.1) from 
ftp://ftp.tuwien.ac.at/linux/debian sarge
Whats above the /guest-packages-*/mkinitrd- which I found for
suse, red hat but not for debian?

Thanks in advance
