Hello, unless you typed this by hand, you ,mispelled 'kernel' and 
and 'initrd /initrd-2.4.18.img' should probably be 'initrd
/initrd-2.4.18-14.img'
if you have default Redhat install. Does the /boot/initrd-2.4.18-14.img'

file exist? It could be corrupted so you may have to rescue and make a
new one.
