kernel error


I have fedora 10 kde on a laptop IBM T60.I just got a message that my kernel is damaged.I cant do anything when it boots.My laptop just hangs and I have to just shut it off.How can I fix this, in Windows you can boot from the XP CD and choose r to repaid the system.Can that be done in Linux what do I need to do?

Thanks

Boot from the installation cd and take the maintenance option(Ctrl_Alt_F2). Remove and reinstall the kernel.

rpm -e -- nodeps kernel(whatever)
yum install kernel

or somesuch commends
