Hi Tim,

thank for your comments.

I do not understand, I still cannot boot on the new kernel:

By "still cannot boot" what stopped it booting before this update?
Because I had the same problem, never resolved, with the previous update
of the kernel ( if I remember)

That kernel boots for me, I didn't have to change anything to make it
This is why I do not undertsand why ity does not work for me !

This is my grub.conf:
title Fedora (
         root (hd0,7)
#        kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet selinux=0
         kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=/dev/sda8 rhgb quiet selinux=0
         initrd /boot/initrd-

title Fedora (2.6.21-1.3194.fc7)
         root (hd0,7)
         kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 ro root=/dev/sda8 rhgb quiet selinux=0
         initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7.img

I have not problem to boot on: 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7

Using the above grub.conf stanza for that kernel?  Your sample grub.conf
is an exact copy of the file?  There's no typing errors in the copy you
Like what ? I do not see any typo.
I already work around. I cannot see what is wrong. The kernel 2.6.21-1.3194 is absolutely fine, but not the new ones. Same syntax.

By the way:  CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD, NOW!  You've just shown the world the
hashsum for it, and that may be enough to crack it.
Is it the password of grub ?

With the new kernel, if I put:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet selinux=0

if fails because it try to boot on a /dev/sdb,

*Why* does using LABEL=/ cause it to use /dev/sdb?  Do you have two
drives, is "/" the right label?
The first time that I installed a FC7 I had a problem with the root=LABEL=/ because I guess that I had 2 partitions on 2 different
drive with the same lable like /. So since that time, I avoid to use the
LABEL. When I will understand exactly what is going on, I will be able
to make more test. Right now, I have a kernel booting properly. Doing
the same thing and just booting another kernel should work and it does not.
Try the following command to see what label is on /dev/sda8:

e2label /deb/sda8
Yes /dev/sda8 has a label /, as well as /dev/sdb5 which I only mount in read-only.

 so I force it to boot on
/dev/sda8, but I get:
setuproot: moving /dev failed No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc
setuproot: error mounting /sys

This is odd.  Does using "/dev/sda8" definitely work for the other
