    That could mean two things:
    1. You don't have /sbin/init; ensure that you uncomment it in Config.h, and
    ensure you have the link to busybox.
    2. You don't have required shared libraries; use chroot and ldd to check
    what is needed.

    "Try passing init= option" means that you could give a init=/bin/sh argument
    to the kernel when LILO ask you which image to use.
