What exactly were you playing with? It sounds like you may of
screwed up your initrd. Is there an older kernel installed
that you can boot with?

If the initrd is the issue you should be able to boot using a
rescue cd and rebuild it using the mkinitrd command (back up
the existing one just in case, it's in /boot/`uname -r`.img
