Ok, right now after updating to this latest, I can not boot.  I get to the
point of this:

Red Hat nash version 4.1.9 starting
Mounted /proc filesystem
Mounting sysfs
Loading jdb.ko module
Creating block devices
Creating root device
Mounting root filesystem
kjournald starting.  Commit interval 5 seconds
EXT3-fs: mounted file system with ordered data mode.
Switching to new root


Then it just hangs and nothing happens.  It doesn't matter if I use older
kernels, same behavior.  I have no clue.  Is it because the dev package
was deleted?  I had set in /etc/udev/udev.conf
UDEV_INITRD="no"
to avoid the many error messages at boot time, should that be set to
"yes"?  Then remake the initrd?

I can boot the rescue disk and get to the files, so I know the disk
partitions are ok.

Thanks, just going through a paradigm shift myself right now.
