Subject2.4.12 cannot find root device on raid

I have the following problem:

kernel 2.4.12, md and raid1 compiled into the kernel.
/dev/hdb old linux installation
/dev/md0 -> /dev/hde1,/dev/hdg1 new installation

When I boot my old installation the md device is automatically configured
by the kernel and I can mount it (reiserfs) without any problems.

When I try to boot the new installation with the same kernel the md device
is initialized, but the kernel cannot mount the root device. I get msgs
about FAT problems and about mounting root as msdos.

Here some config files:
image = /boot/lx-2.4.12
root = /dev/hdb1
label = old
image = /boot/lx-2.4.12
root = /dev/md0
label = new

Thanks a lot for any information

Best wishes
