You seem to be booting off a SCSI disc. Do you have the IDE drivers
(for hda2) built into the kernel or as modules? If as modules, are they
loaded at startup (i.e. listed in /etc/modules)?
If the modules aren't loaded at startup, the device(hda2) won't exist,
so /etc/init.d/mountall.sh (or your distribution's equivalent) won't see
it to mount it.
Try adding the following lines to /etc/modules:
You probably only need ide-disk, it should pull in the others automatically.
