am a new user to Red Hat Linux Enterprise Edition 4.1
I am trying to install a new kernel on my Linux.

I have compiled the kernel and copied bzImage to /boot partition.
Also I have modified the grub.conf file
it is listed as

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,2)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda6
# initrd /initrd-version.img
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux
root (hd0,2)
kernel /vmlinuz- ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (2.6.9-5.ELsmp)
root (hd0,2)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-5.ELsmp ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-5.ELsmp.img
title Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS-up (2.6.9-5.EL)
root (hd0,2)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-5.EL ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
initrd /initrd-2.6.9-5.EL.img
title windows xp
rootnoverify (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

this is listing of /dev/sda

[root@localhost grub]# fdisk /dev/sda

Command (m for help): p

Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes

managed to find out my hardware.
I have SCSI hard disk installed on my PC.

so I have now enabled the SCSI support in the configuration.

But now this has given rise to new error solving the previous ones...

the last message that appears on the screen when i boot is

Enforcing mode requested but no policy loaded.Halting Now
Kernel Panic : No syncing : Attempted to kill init !!!

Please help me out

Try the solution noted on this forum.

Are you installing the new kernel from source, or a RedHat repository?
