If you are like us and had Perc 3/Di controllers
the modules changed for the raid controller..

Step back to the old kernel and the machine will
boot then perform these steps..

rpm -e the new kernel versions.

Then change the /etc/modules.conf
from megaraid_2002  megaraid2.

Then run the up2date command again.

This worked on 9 machines I just upgraded
in the past 2 days....
