Let me first state that this is a fresh install from the live cd. Everything seems to work great, except for one thing. I cant seem to be able to update my kernel, or do anything that changes a kernel. When I do, and I boot from the new kernel image the system just hangs right after grub.
Current Image installed that works = 126.96.36.199
Updated to 3.5.1-1 a few days ago, never could boot up successfully.
Removed kernel listed above and decided to get rid of Nouveau drivers and go with proporiety nvidia drivers. Again system hanged after grub, it started to work, even showing the loading bar icon (I guess that is what you would call it) But then it just hanged, never reaching the GDM.
So again, removed that kernel and unistalled nvidia drivers, and went back to Nouveau.
Today I went for an update kernel to 3.5.2, yet again it hangs after grub.
Here are my specs:
Dual boot 64bit Fedora and Windows XP on seperate HDDs. SDA is where windows is at, SDC is where Fedora is at, the boot sits on SDC1. BIOS Screen has my SDC booting first.
Quad Core 3.10Ghz CPU Intel
Nvidia GeForce 6600 (yes I know its an older card, will be upgrading it soon as I can)
3 SATA Drives, 200GB Linux HDD, 160GB WIN HDD, and 1TB Storage HDD
1 SATA Blu-Ray Player
Not sure if all that was relevent, but just in case I listed it. If there is anything else you need, please let me know.

rpm -qa | grep kernel -
Ran across a thread that suggested using a rawhide kernel, so I went ahead and tried that route as well, although I noticed after the fact that it installed a kernel for f18. But regardless, it failed.
