Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm assuming you formatted your Linux partition when you installed RH 7.3, right?, because what that errors seems to complain about is that it cannot recognize your Linux partition as EXT file system. And/or, that your hardrive wasn't correctly detected by Linux's installation. I'm assuming you have IDE hardrives and not SCSI, right?, I believe this is the case.
Anyway, try changing your lilo.conf to look like this: (I changed a couple of things, check to see if it works this way)
hmmm, weird, after a fresh RH install, there is always some kind of line that goes like this:
this usually goes right between the label=linux
and the read-only, anyway, you don't really need it when you upgrade your kernel by yourself. But after Redhat fresh install there is always a line like that there...weird. Anyway, try it this way and see if it works.
whenever i've seen this error, it's because the wrong hda is specified as the root partition... instead of /dev/hda3, it might be /dev/hda5, or something else entirely, depending on how your partitioned your disk.
