      i had something like this when i updated my kernel with a non rpm kernel

      in my case
      i have my / partition as ext3
      and was loading ext3 support as a module thru initrd,
      which is redhats default behavior ( i think)
      i recompiled with ext3 support as a built in
      and it worked

      another time

      the root=LABEL as shown below didnt work

      title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-24.8.0)
              root (hd0,0)
              kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-24.8.0 ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide-scsi
              initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.18-24.8.0.img


      but when i changed to
      root=/dev/hda2
      things worked better

      title Red Hat Linux (2.4.20)
              root (hd0,0)
              kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20 ro root=/dev/hda2 hdd=ide-scsi vga=788
              initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.20.img


      i dont have a good understanding of what was going on
      but i had similar problems to yours on two occasions,
      but never on an initial install of rh8,
      only when i was upgrading kernel , not thru .RPM  upgrade

      hope this helps
