Init may be running, but you won't see any output as it hasn't managed
to open an initial console. 

My guess would be that your filesystem doesn't have a /dev/console

I've seen this happen with fle systems that expect devfs (e.g. Gentoo),
but I doubt that's the problem with FC3. Does FC3 use udev or something
fancy like that?

Either way, check to see whether you have a populated /dev/ directory
and copy one across if not.
