RE: Error when lunch linux kernel

I would assume by "lunch" you mean launch??
If so, it looks like you are using a "bare" kernel that has nearly all support available as modules rather than being built into the kernel.
The short version is, you need an initrd, which can be made using mkinitrd (if you've got it installed)

Try to supply the following answers and we can direct you a little further down the line regarding how best to create and implement an initrd in your distro/bootloader:

What distro are you using?? (Version # as well)

Which bootloader (GRUB, LILO, Etc??)

Stock kernel or a custom build?? (WHICH stock kernel if you were given a choice)??

Any other relevant info you know such as which filesystem your root resides on (ext3, ext4, reiserfs, etc)

Is this on a raid array, LVM or on a single hard drive??

Get me that info, and I'll try to get you some answers
