I have downloaded Fedora rpm's for initng and initng-ifiles from http://www.initng.org/wiki/Install_Fedora
I installed the rpms and rebooted, The problem is choosing Fedora with Initng starts to boot but never reaches the desktop,
I see a message "that udev is being populated" and the boot sequence halts at 17%

here is /boot/grub/grub.conf

# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,5)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/hda6
# initrd /boot/initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/hda
