If this is the bug of having a tmpfs file system for udev which conflicts with 
SE Linux (and maybe other things) then the solution is to 
edit /etc/udev/udev.conf and change the UDEV_RAMFS and/or UDEV_INITRD 

This will require re-running mkinitrd to get an initrd image with the new UDEV 
settings, so initially you will have to boot from an older kernel version.

If the UDEV_RAMFS option makes your machine unbootable even with an older 
kernel then the solution is to boot from an install CD and then go to a 
virtual console with a shell running (VC3 I think from memory).
