Question Install Kernel to Slackware 10.1

Hi everybody. I m trying to install Kernel to Slackware 10.1 on my laptop pc and when i finish and reboot the system, this error comes out:
Kernel Panic ... can not mount root fs to Uknown Device (some nymbers).

The commands i follow for the installation was:

make menuconfig
make modules
make modules_install
make install

then i run liloconfig and i reinstalled lilo to the MBR.

Anyone knows what is wrong. I think that i must change something so the system can mount the root filesystem to hard disk. But I don't know what?
