Kernel panic

Hi all,
I had my RHEL3 up and running. I tried to remove a software OCFS. After a reboot the machine simply fails to start. I know there are more messages but I need someone to help me step by step as I am a tootal newbie.
the error message is

ERROR /bin/insmod exited abnormally!
loading jbd.o module
insmod: a module named jbd already exists
ERROR /bin/insmod exited abnormally!
loading ext3.o module
insmod: a module named ext3 already exists
ERROR /bin/insmod exited abnormally!

umount /initrd/proc failed: 2
Freeing ununsed kernel memory: 228k freed
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.

Please help. It's urgent

I cannot even go to my single user mode

Oracle (I assume OCFS meant Oracle Clustering File System) can be fairly pervasive.  Would it be possible just to remove the data, then reinstall? That would probably be the simplest option.
