A killer on remote machines can be when the new kernel detects your NIC 
cards in a different order and either skips initialization or assigns 
the wrong IP's.  It may be hard to test that unless you have indentical 
hardware.  If you have remote support you may be able to talk someone 
through the fix anyway.
