You're missing some things on the kernel line.  It should have a
structure like this:  

  kernel /vmlinuz  ro  root=

Where the root parameter points to wherever "/" is located.  It could be
referred to by UUID, labels, or partition details.  There can, also, be
other parameters, like rhgb or quiet, but they're not needed to boot.

e.g. kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64 ro root=LABEL=systemroot
or, kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64 ro root=/dev/sda2
or, kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64 ro root=UUID=sdf-dfgd-ewrew-rewq
but replacing my label, device ID, or random UUID examples with your
actual ones.

I'd expect you to see some sort of error message without having any
referral to where to find the root partition.

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
