Kernel panic from a boot floppy usually means it can't find the root linux partition so it freeze up, try something like this if its a lilo boot disk

boot: root=/dev/hdb?, replace the ? with the valid # partition, (assuming your linux is sitting on IDE disk2 slave cable, if its another master drive it will be hdc, watch the kernel boot screen to determine which before the panic), you can also get into linux with a rescue cd such as RedHat's bootable CD1, once your in you can rerun lilo and get your dual boot back, hope this helps, it saved my arse many times, reinstalling suks.
