kernel panic - not syncing


hii all ,
I installed the Gentoo on server which have two hardisk , then I make
configuration to connect between the two hardisk as next :

modprobe raid1
mknod /dev/md1 b 9 0
mknod /dev/md2 b 9 1
mknod /dev/md3 b 9 2

mdadm --assemble /dev/md0 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1
mdadm --assemble /dev/md1 /dev/sda2 /dev/sdb2
mdadm --assemble /dev/md2 /dev/sda3 /dev/sdb3

mdadm --detail --scan > /etc/mdadm.conf

mount /dev/md2 /mnt/gentoo
mount /dev/md0 /mnt/gentoo/boot
mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc


then follow the steps as in manual .

and when I finished then chrooted , it display :
VFS: Insert root floppy and press ENTER
floppy0 : floppt imeout called
end_request : I/O error , dev fd0 , sector 0
kernel panic - not syncing : VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(2,0)


knowing the server specifications is AMD Athlon (tm) 64 processor 3500+

and my partions table as next :
/dev/md0 for boot (used ext2 as file system)
/dev/md1 for swap
/dev/md2 for root (used reiserfs as file system)



and the grub.conf is :
timeout 30
default 0
fallback 1
title Gentoo-2.6.15
root (hd0,0)
kernel /Linux-2.6.15 root=/dev/md2


and the fstab is :
# <fs> <mountpoint> <type> <opts> <dump/pass>

/dev/md0 /boot ext2 noauto,noatime 1 1
/dev/md2 / reiserfs noatime 0 0
/dev/md1 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,ro 0 0
#/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto 0 0

proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

shm /dev/shm tmpfs nodev,nosuid,noexec 0 0

Are you sure reiserfs is NOT a module. It must be compiled into the kernel for the kernel to be able to mount the root filesystem. If you must have a module, read up on initrd.
