Looks like you've screwed up somewhere. Have you compiled support for
you motherboard's chipset into you kernel? Likewise support for whatever
device your root filesystem is on and whatever filesystem you use. I get
the "No init found" error if I screw up the grub.cfg and try to boot the
wrong partition (which doesn't have /sbin/init) but that shouldn't
produce an oops. Sorry I can't be more help.
