compiling 2.4.21 vanilla kernel

All: 
I have been trying to boot of a vanilla kernel (2.4.21) which I compiled.
When I boot of my new kernel I get this message 

Kernel Panic: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

This looks like a trivial booking keeping elilo.conf issue, but I am not
able to figure out what the problem is. 

This is a snapshot of my elilo.conf


<snip>

prompt
timeout=100
default=2.4.21

image=vmlinuz-2.4.21
        label=2.4.21
        initrd=initrd-2.4.21.img
        read-only
        append="root=LABEL=/"

image=vmlinuz-2.4.21-15.0.4.EL
        label=hack
        initrd=initrd-2.4.21-15.0.4.EL.img
        read-only
        append="root=LABEL=/"

image=vmlinuz-2.4.21-15.0.4.EL
        label=2.4.21-15.0.4.EL
        initrd=initrd-2.4.21-15.0.4.EL.img
        read-only
        append="root=LABEL=/"

<snip>

I am not able to boot off only the first one in the list. 

This is how I am compiling the kernel. 
make mrproper
make clean
make menuconfig
make dep
make vmlinux 
I copied the vmlinux to /boot/efi/efi/Redhat (where all my images are) and 
Lastly did the mkinitrd. 

I am wondering where I am going wrong. 



TIA
