So it still has problems, after setting the /etc/fstab in the right way?
Perhaps you should reconsider compiling a new kernel, so that you can
hopefully start without problems then? It happened to me, after
installing a new kernel it worked (well... I'm now still waiting for RH
4.0 to arrive, b/c I still had a few problems... but ok).

Also, show me what your partition table looks like, so that I at least
have an idea what we're talking about...

Ok, duty calls... good luck.
