boot problems after yum update

hello all

i recently ran yum update for the first time in quite a while. it did its business and i approve all changes including kernel.

I rebooted the machine the next day and it failed to startup

I started it in "rescue" mode and viewed the boot.log. there were no new entries in there since the updates. I think there is a kernel problem...

Im quite new to all this and would like any help you can give.
i think it might have gone wrong...

What should be my first steps?

Should I try to remake kernel (never done before)
can i roll back to older kernel?

also, its using lilo not grub :/

sorry for all questions but spent hours trying to fix :/

What option(s) do you have on selecting a kernel before booting?

You should still have your old ( previous ) kernel there. Select it and you should boot fine.
