Redhat 7.1 Install Problem (Kernel Panic root=)

Hello, I have a 20Gb hard disk and partitioned it into 2 partitions, C & D, with each partition with 10Gb. I have preinstalled Win 98. My problem is when I tried to install Redhat 7.1 OS, I got this problem, which is:
"Kernel Panic: VFS: Unable to mount root 8:41 something" and the installation process halted.
Please help.

We need more info about your hardware plataform.

Some times, if you have a non-compliance ATAPI CDROM in the same channel of your IDE HDD-ATA33-66-100, the systems became unestable at the install setup time.

The more Easy way of solution is, change (temporaly at least) the CDROM unit for one NEW CDROM ATAPI complaint AND connect this to diferent IDE CHannel (the second for example).

This problem is very frecuent with UPGRADED equipment. Like Home PCs that are armed PIECE for PIECE.

Good Time.
