I also get some similar message after downloading updates last week (7/24/05). Essentially, the Linux partition of my dual boot PC internal hard drive is now useless, after running smooth between mid-May 2005 and July 23, 2005.
How do I boot off the previous kernel when it just goes to the error message and locks up?
BTW, the screen looks like this (with some omission)…
“Booting Fedora Core (2.6.12-1.1372_FC3smp)
Uncompressing Linux…OK, booting the kernel
Red Hat nash version 4.1.18 starting

My actions so far:
Boot with FC3 Rescue CD
Went into grub and tried to open the "menu.1st" with vi editor
I see absolutely nothing!
I was expecting to see some commands and in particular "kernal (hd0,1)/boot/vmlinuz..."
I wanted to changed that command to the older kernal...
What can I do???
