Currently, the filename is "hardcoded" in /etc/grub.d/05_debian_theme
(that file is considered conffile in debian, so you will be prompt for
action on upgrade).

Does your menu has something like :
        linux   (hd0,2)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-5-686 root=/dev/sda2 ro 
        initrd  (hd0,2)/boot/initrd.img-2.6.18-5-686
where "root=" is defined correctly ? (YMMV)

(You should be able to recover using any post Debian/Etch CD's recover
option, then update-grub  from the shell)
