Unhappy Kernel Panic


Total newbie here...I have Mandrake 8.1 up and running on a PII-233. Whenever I try to boot from a linux CD ( I tried TurboLinux 6.5, Debian 2.2, and Mandrake 8.1), I keep getting one of two errors:

1) Kernel Panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 01:00
2) Kernel Panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 01:03

I replaced the HD, and still get the same error, so I know that's not the problem. All of the distro's give me the same error...sometimes its one, sometimes its the other...none is associated with any distro, it's just kind of random.

I would appreciate your help, and thanks in advance.
