Kernel Panic from debian to fedora...


so i was running debian just fine with my custom compiled 2.6.11.6 kernel.

I switch to fedora core 2, downloaded and unpacked 2.6.11.6 from kernel.org and compiled it using the same .config from my custom debian kernel, the compile went smoothly. (as i expected)

but now when i reboot i get...
Kernel Panic - Not Syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

i looked in /boot/grub/menu.lst and from whan i can tell everything seems to be correct but i still get this error when trying to boot the new kernel.

I changed NO hardware, i simply switched from debian to fedora core 2, which is why i dont understand why this happened.

i dont know if paths are pointing to incorrect places or if fedora needs something special in the kernel that debian dosent but its getting frustrating because it makes no sence to me, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I dont really want to use the origional config fedora comes with because it is a bloated, precompiled kernel that is not specific to my hardware. And besides, FedoraC2 comes stock with 2.6.5 so its older anyways. Thats why im using the 2.6.11 sources along with the custom config I made. Worked fine with debian running on the same computer, but not FedoraC2. Im just trying to figure out if I need to add something to the kernel to make it work in Fedora that just wasnt necessary for Debian, or if my kernel is fine like I had assumed it would be and troubleshoot elsewhere.
