Your kenel must have a bit of problem.I think you should rebuild your kernel as steps:
1.modify /usr/src/linux/Makefile,EXTRAVERSION=-8(if your system is redhat9,remove custom)
2.make mrproper
3.make menuconfig and save
4.make dep
5.make clean
6.make bzImage
7.make modules(if you select modules)
8.make modules_install(if you select modules)

did you make sure the root and boot partitions file system type are included in the kernel and not modules? I had the same error and it was that before.

I had the same problem when I tried to compile 2.6.0. I think it needs an initrd image to be placed in the /boot.
Goto bzImage (newly compiled) directory and use mkinitrd to create initrd, copy it to /boot

The main thing is to compile ext3 directly into the kernel _not as a module_

Run-

#make xconfig

Go to FileSystems & put a check on Ext3 journalling file system suport.

Then follow the usual steps -
#make bzImage
#make modules
#make modules_install
#make install

You _do not_ need to run make dep and make clean for ver 2.6 kernel

When I made a boot floppy disk for linux.. My notion was to have a disk like MSDOS boot disk ,which will give me a console that will alow me to go through the file systems and make necessary changes to reboot.. But the one I made did not look like that .. even after tried to boot the stuff with folppy .. I ran in to same problem of kernel panic ...

I know, all that i have to do is to change the grub.cofig for my system to work but

What a stupid stuff .. I can't even do that with this boot floppy ....

I don't know how i will recover from this

If your system is RH,you can insert RH disc1,then enter rescue mode.
You might operate like you say above.
