Redhat 7.3 /amd -kernel panic newbie please help

I have the partitions like this

/dev/hda1 ntfs

/dev/hda2 ntfs

/dev/hda5 extended
/dev/hda6 /boot ext2/ext3
/dev/hda7 / ext2/ext3
/dev/hda8 swap

I have tried both ext2 and ext3
with ext2 get the message

kernel panic : unable to mount vfs......

with ext3

kernel panic:try passing init=option to kernel

I am a newbie and don't know how to take care of this.

I tried booting using the rescue mode of the cd,it too said no linux
partitions with linux file system

Even formated everything and reinstalled every thing as earlier partions
were made using partition magic and saw a post somewhere that it can mess up
the installation
am using grub as the bootloader and am writing onto the mbr.

may have to complie a kernel but how to do that and do I have to reinstall
everything again.

windows shockingly still boots properly.
as a newcommer to the linux world have tried what works for windows the
most...,a fresh reinstall,more than a couple of times but still no luck

am using sis 630 as the video card.

please help

take care
