I second Stefan's response. I was so stubborn at first to try This and then it helped me so much! So please try this or Netconsole. I suspect your kernel could not mount the file System you specified. If you try the above methods you should See exactly what failed. I think...
FYI Netconsole link: http://technocrat.net/article.pl?sid=04/08/14/0236245&mode=nested

I prepared a kernel elf file. The station is up and it loads the elf file. Then nothing happens. Just print something: Firmware: bios is Linuxbios
One note: It would be a lot easier to help you if you posted a bit of context around your debug reports, like 2-3 lines of serial output before the hang etc. Plus, just pasting the actual serial output is easier to debug than writing error messages down from memory. Detailed reports will give you higher quality and quicker answers.
What can be the problem?
You did not specify to use serial console for your Linux kernel. add something like "console=ttyS0,115200n8" to your command line.
