New Fedora User


Hello I have been using Linux for well over two years now and I decided that I wanted to try Fedora. So Installed Fedora Core 3. I have update my entire system via yum, now I noticed that I would only get sound after I ran "soundcard detection" tool. Is that a common issue or is that something I should look further into?. Thinking my sound card was the cause I decided to install a new kernel with my configuration. I compiled my Kernel and everything sucessfully yet when I select my Kernel in the grub listing it says the kernel boots fine but cannot mount the filesysystem. This is my grub file:

#boot=/dev/hda
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora Core (2.6.10-1.741_FC3)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.741_FC3 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.10-1.741_FC3.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.9-1.667)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-1.667 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-1.667.img
title Fedora Core (2.6.7)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.7 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet

The 2.6.7 one is the kernel that I installed. I am unable to boot it, I have always use Lilo so this is a new experiance to me. I just copied what was above but changed it to the bzImage and System.map that I wanted it to be direct to. Have I entered something wrong? If you can please help me with these issues I will be a happy Fedora camper. Thanks again.
