[TriLUG] Kernel Panic - This can't be good for a Friday morning

I've got major problems this morning with my samba-ldap authentication
Here's the pertinent information:
RH Linux 9
Been up and running for a couple of months before I rebooted this
Has the following error on reboot:
EXT3-fs: Mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
pivotroot: pivot_root(/sysroot,/sysroot/initrd) failed: 2
umount: /initrd/proc failed: 2
Freeing unused kernel memory: 156K freed
Kernel panic: no init found. Try passing init= option to kernel.
I've searched on the subject and found a couple of things I could try,
but all involve getting into the filesystem, a task I've been unable to
accomplish. I tried passing a 'boot single' to GRUB but the same thing
happens (although the error is slightly different with a 'try passing
root='). I've also tried using Tom's rescue disks, but I can't seem to
mount /dev/sda (where the root partition should be).
I've also tried booting with the linux rescue option using the Redhat
Linux 9 install CD, but I wind up getting an error that no distro was
found on the install cd.
I'm at a loss and panicky..
Any ideas will be GREATLY appreciated.
