Kernel Panic on Virtual Machine


My linux is running on VMware workstation
The kernel version is 2.6.24.3
i compile it using "make defconfig"

when started the new kernel, it prompted
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS:Unable to mount root fs SCSI

I think the SCSI disk driver is not loaded, but i configed the SCSI disk into kernel.

you need to make a initrd.img so it will load the drivers but with such little info hard to help . linux distro? well you need to configure your kernel so it has all the moduls and drivers set to read your file system and then you need to enable them so trust me to just do a defconfig will only hurt you.

i just want build a very small kernel, so i use defconfig.
i am using DEBIAN and the kernel can run properly on the config in the kernel package(not defconfig), but it takes a long time to compile.
