You need to have an "init" option when you boot into your kernel. If it isn't there you need to add one. If you are using GRUB:
title Fedora Core (2.6.10-1.760_FC3)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.10-1.760_FC3 ro root=LABEL=/ quiet rhgb
You NEED the bolded line or linux won't start. I don't know how to configure LILO (because I never have used it).
Make sure that the bolded line matches your system however. Look in the boot folder for *.img files.
