I believe so. Could you mount your boot partition and verify you have a
vmlinuz and initrd symlinks to their respective kernel and initrd?
Should be as easy as, in a console as root, mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt, then
go to /mnt in Konqueror.

I know they don't, but I was seeing there is different notation for a
lvm drive.

Would love to see the fstab in your 10.0 system. You could probably
mkdir /data1, then use Yast Partitioner to mount the old 10.0 root lvm
partition to /data1 to get to it.

Where are you seeing this?

That might be it. You could try changing the root=/dev/hdb3 to

Sounds like it is finding the boot partition, and thus the kernel image
and the initrd, but the kernel's module tree, located on your lvm root,
are not being located. We are close. If you can mount your lvm drive
and get to it, could you send the 10.0 fstab and lilo.conf?
