Welcome to LUGOD.

It is odd that lilo can't find your kernels yet the kernel panics.
Boot Linux from a floppy, or your Redhat install media and go through
the menu/gui choices until you find a rescue section.  Mount your root
partition read-write if it isn't already mounted. Restore your
original lilo.conf from the backup you made.  Rerun lilo.  Reboot.

That's the general rundown of what I would try.  Email if you get
stuck or have questions on the details.
