Don't chew the lumps! We have cats hereabouts.

Glad you are back up and running Archie! You sure have a lot of patience! You had some darn good support too!
Archie:What were the messages for the last 5-10 lines before the panic line you quoted. Those are the ones that give us clues.From the liveCD, logged in as root, in a terminal;[root@localhost ~]# mkdir /here <Enter>[root@localhost ~]# mount /dev/sda5 /here <Enter>[root@localhost ~]# mount -o bind /proc /here/proc <Enter>[root@localhost ~]# mount -o bind /sys /here/sys <Enter>[root@localhost ~]# chroot /here <Enter>To get online from within the chroot;[root@localhost /]# service network start <Enter>From there you should be able to run apt-get to install the kernel or your choice. You might want to check /boot/grub/menu.lst to see if it got corrupted somehow, and also check the vmlinuz and initrd.img links in /boot, to see what they are linked to;[root@localhost /]# ls -l /boot |grep vm <Enter>[root@localhost /]# ls -l /boot |grep init <Enter>
AndrzejL:You might want to follow along with this thread, where we are trying to correct a borked previous dist-uprade. Something useful might develop, and there is more detail and explanation of the process.http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,93111.msg787465.html#msg787465
