CRC error/Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block

Hi, Good Day!

I am currently evaluating RHEL 4, Update 4 on Intel 64bit system.
My server has the following specifications:

Intel Core2 E6400/2.13GHz
Intel D946GZIS Motherboard

I used the default options during installation. I also used the default
partitions created by 'autopartioning'.

I have successfully installed RHEL4, however, after rebooting I get this:

Booting 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (2.6.9-42.ELsmp)'
kernel direct mapping tables upto 10100000000 @ 8000-d000
root (hd0,0)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-42.ELsmp ro root=LABEL=/ pci=nommconf rhgb quiet
[Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size 0x195886]
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-42.ELsmp.img
[Linux-initrd @ 0x37f02000, 0xed992 bytes]

Decompressing Linux...done.
Booting the kernel.
crc error
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

I am new with Red Hat and would really like to learn. I have searched the
knowledgebase and other forums, but could not find any solution. Can you
assist me and tell me what I did wrong? or what I should do? I would
appreciate any help that you can give me.

Many thanks,
