Question FC5 installed on ext hd. gets to load screen - problems

Ok... New big problem... I am getting very frustrated now.
I have solved all previous problems with hints and tips from forum users but mostly with fiddling.
This problem I dont know how to fiddle around it...

I have installed FC5 onto my external harddrive (i chose 'remove all linux partitions and continue with default layout' on a second install)and I changed the MBR to Grub on my second install. So now, it rebooted and went to the dual boot screen (select fedora core 5 or other) and I let it boot into fedora

upon doing so, i was left with a series of errors
for ease of understnading for anyone who may chose to help, I have recorded the whole screen session. The real problems come when trying to boot he kernel and after...

Rooting command list

root (hd0,0)
Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
Kernal /vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rghb quiet
[Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1e00, size0x17c0ac]
initrd /initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp.img
[Linux-initrd@0x37e3c000.0x1b3ecf bytes]

Uncompressing Linux... OK, booting the kernel.
PCI:Failed to allocate mem resource #6.20000@d0000000 for 0000:01:00.0
Red hat nash Version 5.0.32 starting
ata2:disabling port
Reading all physical volumes. This may take a while...
No Volume groups found
Unable to find volume group 'VolGroup00"
Unable to access resume device (/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01)
mount: could not find file system '/dev/root'
setuproot: moving /dev failed:No such file or directory
setuproot:error mountin /proc:No such file or directory
setuproot:error mounting /sys: No such file or directory
switchroot:mount failed : no such file or directory
Kernal panic - not syncing : Attempted to kill init!

So there it is... I can see the problems, but I'm not sure how to fix them.
Can anyone help me? I'm in desperate need of speedy responses.
