Re-3: Unable to mount root fs on 16:41

Hello LFS-Users!

You're right: when I type ls -l /dev/hdd1 it answers:
brw-rw----    1 root     disk      22,  65 Mai  5  1998 /dev/hdd1

But how can I tell Linux to mount root fs on 22:65 instead of 16:41?
Where have I made this fatal thing?

Thank You for your answers,

Christian
