init option in grub's kernel command

hi all

What should be given for init option in grub's kernel command if kernel panic comes. What could be reason for the error "kernel panic.No init found.try passing init= option to kernel.

Can anyone help on this?

The root filesystem wasn't found. You probably have an error in your grub configuration. Try either editing your grub lines or using the grub shell to locate where the root filesystem (/) actually is. From there you can boot up and fix your /boot/grub/menu.lst file to reflect the changes.
