My 2.6.14 kernel won't boot. I have tried to document it as best I can
below. Any help or recommendation would be greatly appreciated

Errror Message:

Cannot open root device "sda1" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on
unknown-block(0,0)

Notes:

all drivers directly into the kernel (no modules) - not using an initrd
image
using the Adaptec AACRAID support - SCSI_AACRAID=y
using the Fusion MPT ScsiHost drivers for SPI - FUSION_SPI=y
lspci output below.
