lilo to boot puppy - kernel panic

Hallo,on a acer tm 513 (celeron,64ram) I have installed puppy FULL but grub freeze my keyboard (it make the same with other distro)
Therefore I installed delilinux /dev/hda1 which is using lilo and installed puppy on a different partition /dev/hda3 mounted on /mnt

I have copied initrd.gz in the /boot folder of hda3 where there is also vmlinuz and folder /grub ( installed on /root)

Edited lilo.conf to add Puppy as follows:

image = /mnt/boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda3
label = Puppy

Whel lilo starts and select Puppy I get the following message:
Kernel-panic-not syncing :VFS Unable to mount root fs on unhnown-block (3,3)

I think I did not copy kernel in /boot but I did not find it in the cdrom-live
How can I copy it?

Thank for help

I think that you also need to copy an initrd file and put an initrd line in lilo.conf.
