Kernel Panic - not syncing, attempting to kill init!

Hello all,

I have FC5 installed and yesterday I made the PUP update with the new Kernel version. Today when I booted up Linux brings following message at bootup:

ismod: error inserting '/lib/ibd.ko' -1 Operation not permitted
Unable to find device mapper major/minor
Unable to access resume device (/dev/VolGroup00/logVol01)
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
Kernel Panic - not syncing, attempting to kill init!

I have dual boot with Windows XP. I read somwehere that modifying the Grub.conf file this problem will be solved, but how can I access Grub.conf file if I don't have the installation disks or any distros handy?

from this:

title Fedora Core (2.6.5)
root (hd1, 0)
kernel /2.6.5/bzImage ro root=LABEL=/ hdb=ide-scsi

to this:

root (hd1,0)
kernel /2.6.5/bzImage

This issue is little urgent, so any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance,
- Artur
