You have a kernel panic.  Perhaps your file system is missing, or some low level configuration is very, very wrong.
Boot off the RHEL CD and choose rescue mode (i.e.: "linux rescuemode" at the grub prompt).  After boot, RHEL will kindly mount your hard disk somewhere (it'll tell you where - usually it's something like /tmp/mnt/ - but that's from memory, so is likely to be wrong).  At that point, you can switch to one of the other TTYs to get a terminal and can change things on your hard disk.
