Question init not found error after change in RAM

I have a P-IV 1.80 GHz with Dual Boot, Windows 2000 and Mandrake 10.0, with GRUB as the Boot loader on MBR.

I recently had to downgraded my RAM from 1 GB to 512 MB. I didn't boot linux after the downgrade for a few days. Today when I tried to boot linux, it gives an error when mounting the Linux Partition. It says unable to find init, use init= option instead.

I checked the Partition form Windows by both using Partition Magic AND using a Windows based FS reader. I can read the file system without any errors.

Please help ASAP! Thanks in advance.
