Kernel Panic: No init found. Try passing init = option to k
Computer is a Micron Millennium Pentium II 233 MHz, 64 mb, 10 gig.
Install went great but after reboot I get the following error.
Warning: Unable to open an initial console
Kernel Panic: No init found. Try passing init = option to kernel
and then I just get a blinking curser under the last line and am unable to do anything but reset the unit.
Much thanks for any advice. (I'm new to linux)

That's a great message, isn't it? Since you are in Fedora, I assume you went with the default bootloader GRUB. To boot, GRUB starts and checks the file /boot/grub/grub.conf where it should be pointed to the locations of 1) the kernel and 2) the root (/) directory. You get this message when the locations pointed to in grub.conf are not correct. What is your drive and partition configuration (root, boot, etc.) and was there anything that seemed like a problem in your install? You can see your GRUB configuration if, when you boot, hit e for edit instead of hitting 'enter' to boot. Read the instructions below the menu. You can stop the "coutdown" clock by hitting an up/down key. Post the script that looks something like:Code:
title Fedora Core 1 .......... root (hd0,0) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.17 root=/dev/hda2/IMHO
///this use to look better
