Make sure that you compiled the kernel for the right processor. This happened to someone else here and it ended up that the kernel was compiled for a PIII and he only had a PII.

If you d/l the kernel and kernel-headers using the .mdk package and followed its directions - it should have added a lilo or grub option for you.

You would then just pick the old one from the list upon boot.

Bootdisk?

Did you make a bootdisk during your original install?

If so - boot from it and edit lilo back to the original kernel. The HOWTO-lilo docs provides a good example of how to edit it.

If not - you can make a boot disk from your original CD using RAWWRITE. I believe it is included in the documention that came with Mandrake.
