[Centos] Kernel Panic on New Kernel Package

Hey all,


I have a P4 2.4 GHz CPU (hyper threading) and have been using the
2.4.21-20.EL.c0smp kernel and it works perfectly.


I installed the new kernel-smp (2.4.21-20.0.1.EL) kernel and it installed
flawlessly.  However, every time I boot I get a kernel panic and I must
reboot to the older kernel.  


The error I am getting is: (it seems to be failing on jbd.o and ext3.o)

Kernel requires old insmod, but couldn't run /bin/insmod.old No such file or

Then it can't find the initrd and Panics.  


I am running a single partition on my software RAID1, the file system is

[root at admin /]# df

Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on

/dev/md0             115377576   2014940 107501728   2% /

none                    512700         0    512700   0% /dev/shm

[root at admin /]#


I just can't seem to figure it out.  I've done some searching online but the
fixes people are posting just don't seem logical as my initrd IS there.


[root at admin /]# ls -al /boot/*2.4.21-20.0.1.EL*

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        48514 Dec  2 18:38

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       306034 Dec  3 16:13

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       601959 Dec  2 18:38

-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root      3523220 Dec  2 18:38

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root      1353893 Dec  2 18:38

[root at admin /]#


Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would like to put this machine
into production soon.
