Hmmmm........ when you say the new 2.6.9-42 kernel do you mean the this or do you mean the 2.6.9-42.0.2.EL kerenl and if this is an smp kernel or not, this is important.

If the smp kernel then try the non-smp kernel of the same version number. The older 2.6.9-5 kernel sould still be inplace so boot with this one and let us know.

Also see;

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla....cgi?id=204733
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla....cgi?id=205001

You may want to try downloading the 2.6.9-42-0.2.EL kernel source and build it yourself.

Removing unwated kernels is not hard, first get the list of them;

rpm -qa 'kernel*'

From this output carefully remove the ones you do not want;

rpm -e kernel-<version_number_here>

Repeat until done.
