Thank you!  Is there and easy way to get the original kernel to boot
instead of defaulting to the new one?
    

I would....

1.  Boot to the kernel you want to run.

2.  As root, "rpm -e kernel-2.6.16-1.2107_FC5" and if you installed it
"rpm -e kernel-devel-2.6.16-1.2107_FC5"

3.  To be safe...  Go to /boot/grub and check the grub.conf to ensure it
has been updated correctly.  The "default=X" line should point to the
correct "title" grouping.


FWIW, don't go updating your kernel stuff at the drop of hat.  Wait a
while and watch the list.  When people start complaining....you'll have
a clue as to the direction you should take.

Remember "Fedora" isn't always "Stable".
  

This actually the first time a kernel update has bit me but thanks for the fix, it worked like a charm.
