I have a hard time believing that 2.6.0-test kernels have this bug. There
must be something else going on here. This is my grub.conf file:

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this
file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,7)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda8
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
default=1
timeout=10
splashimage=/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-19.8)
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-19.8 ro root=/dev/hda8 vga=792
initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20-19.8.img
title Red Hat Linux (2.6.0-test2-0808)
root (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.0-test2-0808 ro root=/dev/hda8 vga=792
