SubjectKernel Panic

Hello, All,

I am trying to set up a boot disk as well as a root disk for Linux 2.0.24
(Slackware '96). I've created a minimal kernel with floppy, ramdisk, IDE,
CDROM, and printing support, but no modules. It is also set up with appropriate
file systems: e2fs and minix; don't care about DOS in this case. My system boots
OK, but after it asks for the root disk and crunches on that for a few moments,
I get the following message:

Kernel panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on 02:00

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong? This is probably an easy one, but I haven't
seen any mention of it in the news groups, the HOWTO's, or anywhere else.
