Thanks for advice, but I'm still trying to figure out how to resolve this problem.
Rdev command gives:

rdev /boot/vmlinuz-
Root device 0xca01

then, I'm wondering why this output is not included in the file command line?
Rdev is trying to set root device to be something like /dev/... .
I still can not manage to set root_dev value to be 0x902 as in the case of Fedora 10 kernel?

You can use rdev to set the default root device.
