Still no luck, I am afraid. This is what I have done.

#chroot /mnt/sysimage.

'uname -r' shows 2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i586

I ran 'mkinitrd -v /boot/test.img 2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i586'. I put the -v in
to see what was happening, but it just returns to the prompt silently.

#ls /boot shows nothing - I don't think it is mounted.

I ran 'cat /etc/fstab', and alarmingly (I think) it has changed from what it
was before.

Before -

/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00  /  ext3  defaults  1  1 
UUID=b6c62c5a-0afb-4258-a726-6a377a6f3b9e  /boot  ext3  defaults  1  2 
tmpfs  /dev/shm  tmpfs  defaults  0  0 
devpts  /dev/pts  devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0  0 
sysfs  /sys  sysfs  defaults  0  0 
proc  /proc  proc  defaults  0  0 
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01  swap  swap  defaults  0  0 

Now -

UUID=6e47e294-fc8d-4457-b1e9-03f68a57d0aa  /  ext3  defaults  1  1
tmpfs  /dev/shm  tmpfs  defaults  0  0 
devpts  /dev/pts  devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0  0 
sysfs  /sys  sysfs  defaults  0  0 
proc  /proc  proc  defaults  0  0 
UUID=519e0658-aa0a-49a2-9b39-d80e92b0c838  swap  swap  defaults  0  0

The only thing I can think of that might have changed it is that I booted
off the install dvd and selected 'install/upgrade'. It gave a warning that
the partition table was unreadable and that device sda will have to be
reinitialized. I did not proceed past that point, but maybe it was too late.

What seems odd, to me, is that while I am in rescue mode, I can see all the
files on my system, so it obviously has no problem actually reading the hard
drive.

I have not tried Paulo's suggestion of 'yum update kernel' yet. I will try
it and report back.

Thanks

Frank
