Kernel Panic {not a critical system though}


The last few lines read

Booting/sbin/init: 456: echo: not found
/sbin/init: 482: umount: not found
/sbin/init: 482: echo: not found
/sbin/init: 482: mount: not found
/sbin/init: 482: echo: not found
/sbin/init: 482: rm: not found
/sbin/init: 482: echo: not found
/sbin/init: 482: echo: not found
/sbin/init: 489: cannot open dev/console: No such File
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attemting to kill init!


And there it is. Not sure what I screwed up, but obviously something.
If you have any ideas, let me know. Since this box wasn't critical, I can let it set for a little while and learn from this, but if push comes to shove, I can just re-install.

What might you have done before you rebooted?
Is the system loading a initrd image?
Substance of /etc/lilo.conf or /boot/grub/grub.conf?
File structure of /boot?

This was a gentoo load on my laptop. I used both the manual kernel configuration and the genkernel automated kernel install. Both gave me kernel errors, and this is the current kernel error. Since this is a genkernel, there is a initrd image. Tomorrow I'm off work, so I think I'll just re-install anyways.
