kernel panic on boot



I'm seeing the same problem Mike Chambers reported - panic with "can't
mount /dev/root" 

relevant portion of grub.conf:
 
title  FCdev-8 2.6.19-1.2885.fc7
root   (hd0,7)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.19-1.2885.fc7 root=LABEL=FC-dev ro vga=791 
initrd  /boot/initrd-2.6.19-1.2885.fc7.img 
savedefault
boot

Had the same problem with kernel 2.6.19-1.2881. Kernel
2.6.18-1.2849.fc6 works properly. In fact the above stanza was
created by cutting and pasting the stanza for kernel
2.6.18-1.2849.fc6 and modifying the entries. Also, the initrd-xxx-img
file for the more recent kernels are over twice the size of the file
associated with kernel 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6. Why?
