Uprading kernel to 2.6

I have RedHat 9 with 2.4.20-8 kernel installed on my computer. Idecided to upgrade it to 2.6. Everything was OK? but after rebooting I saw next message: Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init=option to kernel. What can it be?

How did you make the new kernel?

I upgraded to yesterday (Slack 10.0) without problem..
(.tar.gz from
(as root)
# cp /home/geir/linux- /usr/src
# tar -zxvf linux-
# cd linux-
# cp /boot/config-ide-2.4.26 /usr/src/linux-
# make oldconfig (this takes a little while)
# make bzImage
# make modules
# make modules_install
# cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-
# ln -sf /usr/src/linux- /boot/

in lilo.conf added:
image = /boot/vmlinuz-
root = /dev/hda2
label =

# lilo -v (verbose mode, just more printout in the console)

This did the trick for me.
