GAH! Kernel release 2.6.14-1.1653_FC4 caused me problems!

I yum updated to kernel 2.6.14-1.1653_FC4, rebooted, and was not able to
continue because the error message says:

Error 18: Selected cylinder exceeds maximum supported by BIOS
Press any key to continue

Selecting the same kernel repeats the error, so I had to grub-select my
previous version: 2.6.14-1.1644_FC4 in order to sucessfully boot.

My BIOS and hardware is old (I have a VA Linux Systems 501) and I may not
have any BIOS upgrade options and I have updated to latest BIOS this vendor
supports.  If I am wrong, please let me know.  If I am not, any suggestions are
appreciated but suggestions to get a new computer is not an option since I am
too poor to do so :-(

Kind regards,
