It looks like there are problems with your hard disk controller with
this kernel.

(there is _yet_ another kernel you could try, ha, "apt-get install
kernel#2.6.13-0.3.rdt.rhfc4.ccrma" should bring it to your machine...)

I don't know what may be happening here. What is the message just before
this one? Are you booting without the graphical boot? (minus the "rhgb
quiet" in the kernel boot line).

Probably part of a larger message right?
Just curious, if you _don't_ type init 6, are you able to work with this
kernel? (save for shutting down).
