Has this question been asked enough to make it to the FAQ yet?

First off, thank you to Gerard and all those who have contributed to the
LFS project. I am thoroughly enjoying the fruits of your labors!
My new LFS 3.2 system is kernel panicking when I try to boot. The final
messages of the boot are as follows:
Request_module [block-major-8]: Root fs not mounted
VFS: cannot open root device "802" or 08:02
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs on 08:02
My LFS system is installed on a 9gb Seagate ST19101W SCSI drive. The
SCSI controller is an adaptec AHA-2940. The host system is Red Hat 7.2
on a 100gb Western Digital WD1000BB EIDE controlled by the Tyan Tiger MP
mobo's onboard controller. The scsi drive is partitioned as follows;
/dev/sda1 32mb ext2 /boot
/dev/sda2 remainder ext2 /
/dev/sda3 1024mb swap
I've read through the lilo man page and the lilo mini-howto on linuxdoc.
The mini-howto recommended putting the disk.boot lines at the top to tip
the bios off to use the scsi as the first drive. I've tried various
places to put the "root=" line, including under the image= header, and
booting with "linux-2.4.18-1 root=/dev/sda2" Here is my lilo.conf file.
Thank you in advance for help and suggestions
