upgrading t4 -> rc2, chose new bootloader, grub.

Here's the new grub.conf:

  cat grub.conf
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making 
changes to this file
# NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
#          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to 
/boot/, eg.
#          root (hd0,0)
#          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda5
#          initrd /initrd-version.img
title Fedora (2.6.21-1.3190.fc7)
         root (hd0,0)
         kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3190.fc7 ro root=/dev/sda5
title Fedora-base (2.6.21-1.3194.fc7)
         root (hd0,0)
         kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 ro root=LABEL=/
         initrd /initrd-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7.img
title Other
         rootnoverify (hd0,1)
         chainloader +1

3190 was the t4 kernel. And vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3190.fc7 has 
been removed. So on reboot, you get a file not found error 
for the default boot kernel.

fedora-base does boot.
