Really all you need is

You should make sure you have valid entries in grub.conf, or lilo.conf.

That would be because you can't load your loop module as it was removed by rpm.


mkinitrd failed

Please tell me you haven't removed the 2.5 kernel you installed, and that it has a valid initrd in /boot? Other wise find a redhat install cdrom and boot it with "linux rescue".


PS- Why doesn't redhat build the loop driver directily into the kernel!!! People do this all the time.
