May be you can try to boot from Fedora CD and type
'linux rescue' to see what happens in your system.
Hope it helps.

I've been using FC2T1 since it came out; until now
the only real problem I'd run into was X crashing
due to psaux.
But, today I downloaded kernel version 2.6.3-1.106
as well as about 500 other updates (I had already
downloaded all of the XFree86 updates the day before
and had no problems). But now I cannot boot the
system with any version of the kernel. The X server
starts up, but the screen just turns black with the
'X' cursor. Then I press Ctrl-Alt-F1 to get to the
login screen, and the system is hanging just after
the step where the swap space is activated/mounted.
So, I can never anywhere near a login prompt to try
to diagnose the problem. One other thing: when I
downloaded all of those updates, I did it in two
groups; the first group had the kernel updates, all
lib* updates, and I think systembase (something like
that), and the second group was everything else.
When I started up2date for the second group, it
couldn't show the little pictures on the 'forward',
'back', and 'cancel' buttons (the blue arrows and
red X). Then I restarted gkrellm and it said that it
could load some .png files. So I reinstalled libpng
(I think version 1.2.5) and logged out of KDE. The X
server wouldn't start and give me the blue login
screen; so I rebooted, and haven't been able to get
into Linux since.
If anyone sees any of the symptoms I've mentioned or
has any ideas, I would greatly appreciate any help I
