Kernal Panic

I am using a RH7.2 for a long time. Since it had not given any problems i never thought of changing it. But recently I changed my CDROM. After that change when I try to boot It showed "Kernel panic:no init found. Try passing init=option to kernel". I tried to boot it from the RH7.2 CD and used "linux rescue" to boot, nothing happened it showed some error telling it cannot load on "sysimage" but went to command prompt. This is where Iam stuck at and dont know what to do? I tried to upgrade with the same CD but then it showed mount point '/' is not found which is hda3. How to circumvent this. Thanx for reading and help

clearly NOT a success story... this thread will soon be moved to more suitable forum.

Just a thought

did the jumper setting (Master/Slave) change from your old CDrom drive to the new one? Make sure that the new CDrom drive has the same setting that the old one has.

Just a thought that popped into my head.
