Did you just say Red Hat 4?  Not RHEL4, but RH4?  If you meant to say
RH4 then I think you should try using vendor kernels again.  Really, I'm
going to guess that Red Hat's testing and QA has probably improved a
little bit since then.

If you meant to say RHEL4, then thats a bug and I hope you filed it.  If
you did file it I would expect it not to happen again.  I've not been
using Red Hat for long, but I don't think that this is going to be a
regular occurrence.  I used Debian Unstable and Ubuntu Dev branch for
many years.  I've never had them rendered unbootable by a vendor kernel
upgrade and I'm sure those get far less testing than the kernel upgrades
that go into RHEL.
