Unhappy Kernel panic-not syncing:Attempted to kill init


Hi folks,
I'm having a problem in booting after I installed a new kernel 2.6.18. My distro is Fedora core 5. I'm currently using 2.6.17.6 kernel. The new kernel (2.6.18) compilation went on smoothly, but on booting , its showing up like this

"

uncompressing ... ok

mount:could not find file system. '/dev/root'

setuproot: moving /dev failed. No such file or directory

setuproot: error mounting /proc. No such file or directory

setuproot: error mounting /sys. No such file or sirectory

switchroot:mount failed: No such file or directory

[2:055561] kernel panic-not syncing:Attempted to kill init !! "


What could be wrong?????

My old kernel is booting on smoothly,, but why not the new one.

When I compile a new kernel from the kernel I got with the distro, its working fine.

like my distro kernel is 2.6.15_FC5. when I compile any kernel running 2.6.15_fC5, everything works fine

Say, I got upgraded to 2.6.16, from the distro kernel. After that if I tried compiling a new kernel, it won't boot. I'm getting the error I mentioned above..

Please help me out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How can I fix this?????

where did you first install the boot loader ?
I had the same problem when the boot loader was first installed on the MBR then later installed on the first partion
the fix for me was to install on the MBR BUT
BEFOR YOU TRY THIS read the lilo.conf man page you can I repete you can over write the partion table but there are options to prevent this
