FC7 failed booting, possible SATA RAID issue
Hi all - My computer has two SATA HDDs in RAID0 mode. The motherboard uses nVidia nForce 4 chipset and an Si3132 RAID controller. There's a Windows XP system in partition C, and I made four Linux partitions in the free space to install Fedora: Partition / ,Partition /usr ,Partition /home in ext3 format, and a SWAP partition.
After the installation, I was told to choose reboot. And later the scrolling initialzation text just stopped, here's the last screen of the ini log:

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init![/HTML]
I'm completely new to Linux, it looks like the booting sequence somehow failed to file the file system. If it's because of unrecognized RAID drives on my PC, how did it manage to boot from the vmlinuz and initrd both from the RAID?
Thanks for reading. Any help will be appreciated.
