Description of problem:
Just after the installation (and reboot), the boot process fails with this 

VFS: cannot open rood device "sda1" or unknown-block(0,0)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

2. Reboot as mentioned in the end of install process
3. Kernel Panic!
Actual results:
Kernel Panic

Expected results:

Additional info:
I have an AMD athlon 64 bit processor (3500+), SATA disk & performed a network 
installation. I also changed the default name "Fedora Core" in the boot menu 
(during install) to "Rawhide".

Following was my disk structure
/dev/sda1 - / - 80000 M - EXT3
/dev/sda2 - swap - 512 M
/dev/sda3 - /data - ~=70000M - EXT3
