F 13 installation trouble

I did a fresh text based install on my system today.

On boot, I get:

"Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on

Can you folks please tell me how to get around this?  I googled up and
it looks like a grub issue or something, but I haven't been able to
correct it yet from the posts[1]. They speak of lilo, or of compiling
the kernel with modules or something. I'm installing from a Fedora 13
dvd, so I can't quite compile myself a kernel.
