It literally means the kernel can't find /sbin/init, the first userspace program which starts everything else. It's a less common error - it's more common to fail to mount the root filesystem, e.g. because you forgot to enable e.g. ext3 or sata.

My guess would be your kernel has mounted the wrong filesystem as root. Which device (partition etc) is your root filesystem on, and what boot options do you pass to the kernel?
