Kernal-panic-not syncing-attempted to kill init

I tried to compile a kernal in red hat linux 5.1 with the latest version. I did in this way

1. put the source file in /usr/src
2. tar -xjvf linux-2.6.33.tar.bz2
3. /usr/src/linux-2.6.33]#make
4 /usr/src/linux-2.6.33]#make modules_install
5 /usr/src/linux-2.6.33]#make install

I had checked in /boot/grub/grub.conf the new entry for the latest kernal was found.

I have only / and swap partition and hence it is only /dev/hda1

after rebooting when I am about to enter I get below error

mount:could not find filesystem /dev/root
setuproot:moving /dev failed:no such file or directory
setuproot:error mounting /proc :no such file or directory
setuproot:error mounting /sys :no such file or directory
switchroot:mount failed :no such file or directory
