Grub.conf - Kernel Panic.

Here's a section of grub.conf for my new kernel.

title Red Hat Linux
root ( hd0,0)
kernel / ro root=LABVEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.20-18.9.img

I get Cannot open root device "LABEL=/" and a Kernel panic at reboot.

The initrd is the old image, do I need to rebuild it? If so how?

Why am I get the kernel panic?

suggestion, change your "Root=LABEL/" to "Root=/dev/hda*" where * is your partition number for the root partition. (also presuming that your main drive is the primary master)

In the example you give you have "LABVEL" not "LABEL". You may also want to forget "root=LABEL=/" and use the partition name instead, eg "root=/dev/hda3"
