There is at least initrd= missing before hde5:/initrd.img

But should the initrd path actually be in FILO notation?

Does FILO load the initrd for the kernel, or does the kernel load it
on it's own? If so, use root=/dev/sda5 initrd=/initrd.img

This kernel doesn't see any storage controllers, neither IDE nor
SATA.. :(
