Boot problem Error 15: File not found

I think I've messed up my kernel after upgrading my Fedora from 7 to 8. When attempting to boot it shows

kernel /vmlinuz- ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb

Error 15: File not found

I'm trying to use the rescue mode for the installation disk:

$ rpm -qa|grep kernel

doesn't show any kernel. Do I need to install a kernel?

You should be able to look in your /boot directory to see the kernel (vmlinuz) and initrd files.

And in /boot/grub/grub.conf (assuming you are using grub) you should be able to add an entry for
the new kernel or alter the existing one.

(You could also edit the entry from within grub as the system is booting to see if the new kernel
and initrd are good. reason to believe they are not. That's a whole other long topic.)
