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)
3.make menuconfig and save
7.make modules(if you select modules)
8.make modules_install(if you select modules)
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
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 ....
