error: No init found. Try passing the init= option to the Kernel
I had RH9 with kernel 2.4.whatever. I downloaded the 2.6.1 kernel in an rpm from the Fedora proj. site, and ran "rpm -Uvh filename.x.x.x.rpm". It ran with almost no errors, the errors being module independencies which I fixed. When it was done, I rebooted, and got the following, with lines that may be important in bold:
ERROR: /bin/insmod exited abnormally!
Mounting /proc filesystem

mount: error 19 mounting ext3
pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed: 2
umount /initrd/proc failed: 2
Freeing unused kernel memory: 236k freed
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.
