I believe that if you change the order of the kernels in menu.lst that it will select the kernel at the top of the list....

    Open a terminal:
    Code:
    cd /boot/grub
    You will probably have to use su to become root. Then use a text editor such as joe, nano pico or vi :
    Code:
    nano menu.lst
    Cut the paragraph containing the old kernel (lower number) and paste it above the new one. Then save and quit.
    Code:
    exit
    so that you are not running as root anymore. Same again to close terminal.

    That did it! now is boots into the old working kernel automatically. Still I wonder why it loads so slow, maybe it's all those updates.

    And I still need to fix that wireless card!
