Hi Davide and folks,

I'm running FedoraCore5 64bits.  I got similar problem as Davide's.

2 days ago I ran;

# yum update

IIRC it only updated/installed the new kernel-2.6.16-1.2133_FC5. 
Everything went through without complaint.  After reboot grub did not
work to boot, only a blank screen with GRUB (all in capital character)
on the top left corner without ">".  I was not allowed to input.  key
stroke did not work.

The PC can be booted to the old kernel-2.6.16-1.2122_FC5 with a boot
floppy created with

grub> root (hd0,0)
grub> setup (fd0)

I have no idea to fix this problem.  Please advise.  TIA
