Please give more information... like what you did before restarting... what other messages are there before Kernel Panic message...
most probably it could be initrd... but .... please elaborate more....

Hello

On the info you have provided.

i have the 2.6.7 kernel complied
i had to make initrd image I did as follows

I would make and initrd.img file based on your current kernel

cd /lib/modules

mkinitrd initrd-2.6.7.img 2.6.7

cp initrd-2.6.7.img  /boot

cd /boot/grub

vi /boot/grub/menu.1st

add the following under were grub shows the information for my 2.6.7 kernel boot image.

initrd           /boot/initrd-2.6.7.img

hope this helps

 :D

oops it was
 initrd = /boot/initrd-2.6.7.img

N

Make sure that you've given root=xyz correctly

Btw if it is lilo a file named lilo.comf can be found in /etc edit it it should be something like this

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2188.nptlBOOT ////link to .img or nptl
            label=xyzLINUX      ///(no spaces)
            root=/dev/hdc9          ///(your device could differ)

If you want bootsplash then some more lines are to be written
