Error while booting.

I have downloaded a new kernel on my computer and builded and installed it.

I registered in the grub.conf file. But when I select it from the list, I get a "kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount on root fs 00:00" error.

My grub.conf file is as follows:

title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.img

title Fedora Core (2.4.22-testkernel)
root (hd0,2)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-testkernel ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22.img

title Windows XP
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

I believe I have correctly created the "vmlinuz-2.4.22-testkernel" and "initrd-2.4.22.img" files.

What might be the problem? Thanks.

Did you include drivers for your harddisk in the kernel?
Did you include drivers for the filesystem of your / in the kernel?
