[CentOS] Another server hosed

I'd really like to know what this turned out to be...

I had an issue a while back where a kernel update caused a server to fail 
reboot - something about the combination of SCSI, Software RAID, and Grub. I 
had to run a grub script from the console to get it all back up. (Making an 
emergency plane ride worthwhile as well as fun!) 

The most recent kernel update did not cause any problems. 

My advice? Don't host more than about 2-4 hour drive from home...
