Verify that your lilo.conf file points to the correct initrd file (i.e
the name is correct, and that the file does exist. 

Is the boot failing before the initrd mount or after it? I think you
are trying to say that the initrd image mount is failing. Please

Finally, what is the fs type of your root partition?
