MDK9 and RH9 boot problems


I've been using MDK9 for about a year and decided to run RH9 on an old HD I had lying around. The install for redhat went well, I chose lilo as the bootloader and added mandrake to the list. However when I rebooted, the lilo menu was that of Mandrake, as if RH didn't add anything I added an entry for RH manually but now I get 'Kernel panic no INIT was found try passing the init option" or something like that. Here is my lilo.conf:

boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
vga=normal
default=linux
keytable=/boot/us.klt
prompt
nowarn
timeout=150
message=/boot/message
menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
ignore-table
disk=/dev/hdd bios=0x82
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=linux
root=/dev/hdb1
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="quiet devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi"
vga=788
read-only
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=linux-nonfb
root=/dev/hdb1
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi"
read-only
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=failsafe
root=/dev/hdb1
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="failsafe devfs=nomount hdc=ide-scsi"
read-only
other=/dev/hda1
label=NT
table=/dev/hda
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=RedHat
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
root=/dev/hdd2
append="hdc=ide-scsi root=LABEL=/"
read-only


Thanks for the help

label=RedHat
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
root=/dev/hdd2 #is this the partition red hat's on?
append="hdc=ide-scsi root=LABEL=/"
read-only

Make sure you specified the right partition. "Init not found" means that this is probably the wrong one. "fdisk -l", fdisk -l /dev/hdb" and "fdisk -l /dev/hdd" will list partitions.

Thanks aaa,

Yeah, Redhat's root partition is on /dev/hdd2 and the boot partition is on /dev/hdd1
