Cannot Boot After Kernel26-2.6.29-3 Update On Arch64 [SOLVED]

I updated to Kernel26-2.6.29-3 and when I try to boot, I get the following error messages:

ERROR: Failed to parse block device for UUID=75d4f90b-74ba-4d2e-ade1-bd1346c399ab
ERROR: Unable to create/detect root device UUID=e9d296aa-d9b2-4b68-a75d-f936aceb2b87

Here's my /etc/fstab:

# 
# /etc/fstab: static file system information
#
# <file system>        <dir>         <type>    <options>          <dump> <pass>

/dev/dvd /media/dvd   auto    ro,user,noauto,unhide   0      0

I have used the Arch Live CD to reinstall Kernel26-2.6.28-3 and everything is fine again.  I like to stay updated.  How can I fix this problem with the new kernel?

What about changing the "UUID=e9d296aa-d9b2-4b68-a75d-f936aceb2b87" to actual points (e.g. /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2)?

I just finished trying that.  Kernel26-2.6.29 failed with the same error and Kernel26-2.6.28 still boots fine.

Fixed it!  I'm not sure why this is the first Kernel upgrade I've had to do this, but I had to remove "raid-partitions" from the "HOOKS" line of my mkinit*.conf.  I guess it's because I don't have any raid-partitions and that caused the image generation process to fail.
