Did you perhaps forget a step(1.5 maybe??); make oldconfig

Try replacing the "root=LABEL=/" portion of the kernel line to use your actual root partition, hint carefully read the top comments section of your /boot/grub/grub.conf file.

it sounds like you forgot to include one of your dependencies - maybe the HD. If you have more error info, or can tell more about what you did before the failure, that would help.
