I'm not sure about this ..may be try adding "root" at the same line where kernel is mentioned.
something like -
kernel /vmlinuz-184.108.40.206-174.fc12.x86_64 root=/dev/sda1

I have the same problem then I'm add root=/dev/ram0 option to my kernel and add /dev/ram0 to my initrd.
Generally, kernel is build with devault root device same as your machine boot device
