I have solved it already, I added the lines along with the new 2.6.26.25-?? Fedora 9 kernel.  

+ this one.  

title Fedora (2.6.26.3-29.fc9.i686)

I had only the Fedora 10 Beta kernels booting, but then I manually added the entries with the old kernels and I can boot them.  the 2.6.26.3 kernel booted via chainloader, but the new one did not :( but has been fixed.  Running both Rawhide and Fedora 10 Beta!  Awesome :)

Thanks for the tip though.  It is a keeper in case disaster strikes again.  

Regards,

Antonio
