Well, LILO probably passed root=/dev/hda to the kernel, which tried
to mount hda and failed. If you're using initrd, I think you should add
'root=/dev/ram0' in the lilo.conf of your floppy. Or maybe you're
trying to mount the CD itself as the root filesystem ? In that case,
if your drive is (for example) /dev/hdc you should pass root=/dev/hdc
to the kernel via lilo (but make sure you've created the iso with the
-R option)
