For some reason, when I installed FC3, I got two kernels,
one for SMP, the other for uniprocessing.
Although I only have one processor,
the SMP version was made the default.
Unless I was quick enough to stop it, the SMP version would
run for a while and freeze.  The reset button produced an
unclean reboot.  After about three of those, the filesystems
were corrupted beyond repair.  I had to reinstall.
My work-around was to edit grub's configuration file to ignore
the SMP version.

Perhaps your update produced a similar evil.
