Did you also enable support for ext2fs while compiling the kernel?  The
error message you are seeing has nothing to do with VFAT.  It is saying
that your root filesystem ('/') is not being mounted.  The root filesystem
is usually an ext2fs filesystem.

Also, use make-kpkg (in the debian-kernel package) to build custom kernels
under Debian.
