Dell 510M 2.6 kernels won't boot [SOLVED]

I've just installed the newest 2.6.9 kernel on my Dell 510M laptop with the Con Kolivas (ck) patchset and supermount.

But when lilo boots it up it just says "Loading Linux-2.6.9-ck3..........................." and then it just returns to the lilo menu and if i select it manually by pressing enter on it, it just hangs.

I would be really happy if you would help me out here, say if you need anything like lilo.conf ..

And btw, the 2.4.26 standard slack10 kernel works fine.

-- [SOLVED] --

Solution is simple, i reran lilo another time and it worked magically!

What filesystem are you using? If reiserfs, create a initrd script:
cd /boot
mkinitrd -c -k 2.6.9 -m reiserfs
then add this line to lilo.conf:
initrd = initrd.gz
