No I didn't get any kernel panics...I got ...switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory, booting has failed...setuproot. Basically I edited grub.conf to look like this:

Code:
title Fedora (2.6.23.9-.custom.fc8)
        root (hd0,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.9-.custom.fc8 
#      kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.9-.custom.fc8 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
        initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.23.9-.custom.fc8.img
I am a little worried though. I wasn't sure of the implications of such but I should, I think, just define the root partition as being /dev/sda3 (which it is)
I'm a little tired right now. I'm in Seoul, Korea and it's 2 a.m. I will change the line to

Code:
title Fedora (2.6.23.9-.custom.fc8)
        root (hd0,2)
        kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.23.9-.custom.fc8 ro root=/dev/hda3 rhgb quiet
Thanks for helping out. As a gift, and really everyone should know about this site, you should check out www.ted.com, if you haven't already. Really deep thinkers speak on various issues (esp. technology).

********************************

Here is what my kernel.spec line will look like when I start to compile

Code:
%define fedora_build %(R="$Revision: 1.295 $"; R="${R%% \$}"; R="${R##: 1.}"; expr $R - %{fedora_cvs_origin})
Can I add %define fedora_build %(R="$Revision: 1.295.kexec $"; R="${R%% \$}"; R="${R##: 1.}"; expr $R - %{fedora_cvs_origin})
or would this come up as still an older kernel?
