 How did you create the initrd? Note that /initrd usually is just the 
directory where /boot/initrd-<version> (which is a gzipped file system) 
gets mounted. Are you building an initrd in this directory?

 Looking at the above messages it seems your problem is that / gets mounted 
rw, which is why fsck can't check the file system. You need to mount it ro 
on boot, so fsck can check it (or actually just establish it is an ext3 
file system and skip that step), and remount it rw.
