isolinux booting suse 11 initrd off cd

I am having trouble booting off a cdrom using isolinux.

I see the isolinux prompt and it seems to boot but I run into:

RAMDISK: incomplete write (-28 != 32768 ) 131072000
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,2)

I can't seem to get much debug information either other than the two lines. What do you think I have a problem with? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
