For Fedora it is grub as the boot loader. Been a long time since using the precompiled kernels. But anyways check the /boot/grub/grub.conf and see if the new kernel is listed. Then check the defualt=* line. The first one is 0 then 1 for the next. You may have to select the new kernel by selecting the options when the boot manager is started. Fedora has added items like hiddemenus. Remove that line and it will show all kernels availabe to boot from.
Ouch. I turned my computer off, because I had to do some stuff, and it's been overheating from time to time, and when I turned it on, I selected the new kernel from the GRUB menu, and it had some display issues. The screen was all scrambled-looking once the GUI loaded up.
At text console you will have to enter your login and password. Then run dmesg > ~/dmesg.log . Then your task is reduced to reboot and post it (I suppose you don't have file dmesg.log in yout home directory and nothing private/secret in your kernel logs).
