Have you tried booting the provided boot.iso or vmlinuz/initrd.img?
Also, which glibc did you use?  It was updated last night.

Anyway, it looks like the problem is that the initrd.img has
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 as a symlink to itself, rather than ld-2.9.so, so
/sbin/init fails to load (no dynamic loader).  I'm not sure how that
happened; the glibc RPM has it right.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
