Same problem.

When it boots, I tell it to boot using old Kernal.

Success.

if i boot to runlevel "3" it will go thru most of the boot process, spewing a bunch of erorrs as it goes. I never got a command prompt, but was able to reboot using the powerbutton. the good news is the the old kernel works.
maybe it is an updated graphics driver, since it hangs when booting to runlevel 5 and stops when it tries to load the gui.

I read in one place that this problem has been resolved by updating the BIOS... Of all things.

But yes, the problem I have seen starts when fedora tries to start Udev, so...

I haven't got the same problem but when I had FC5 I made it to update to the 2.6.18-1.2200 kernel without any problems I just ran 'yum update' in a terminal and then it updated all installed packages that needed an update including the kernel

Indeed that should do the trick since it will update udev and gdm aswell... But it is not recommended to update everything like that. Personally I update the kernel separately and then update the rest.

I did update the Kernel on its own. The machine I was using did not have much disk space - so I could not afford to update all at once. The machine then crashed after installing JUST the Kernel and then rebooting.
