Linux Dualboot Problem

I'm dual booting Windows XP Pro and RedHat Linux 8.
I'm sort of new to Linux, so I followed this tutorial: Dual Boot Tutorial except I used RedHat 8.2 instead of 7.2.

I have an 80 gig drive partitioned w/ Windows, a FAT32 storage, 100meg for boot, 18 gigs for Linux OS, and 1020meg for the swap.

The installation went smoothly. Whenever the GRUB bootloader comes up, I can get into Windows XP fine, but when I attempt to boot into Linux I get this error message:

Booting command list

root hd(0,2)
Filesystemtype is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
Kernel/vmlinuz-2.4.18-14 ro root=LABEL=/ hdd=ide=scsi
[Linux-bzImage, setup=0x400, size=0x10ea0d]

Error 28: selected item cannot fit into memory

Press any key to continue....

So, when I press a key, it just brings me back to the bootloader. I can't remember if I intalled root or boot into hd(0,2). Anyone know what is up? Do I need to give more info? Thanks.

edit: Unfortunately, I didn't create a bootdisk. I didn't feel like plugging up my floppy. I could always reinstall and make one if I have to. It didn't take that long.
