Boot on the old kernel, the entire old image. The fact you have dual core does not mean the smp kernel "has to be installed", it should run fine on the uniprocessor one until you come up and can install the smp one.
Thanks, Andy. So, to use in *full* the dual core processor, it is not necessary to install the entire Fedora, sufficing only the installation of the smp kernel? Paul
