FC3 Crashes on bootup
i just had a bit of a system crash on fedora core 3 and now I keep getting kernel panic messages when i try to boot the system.
The last messages are:
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode
switching to new root
enforcing mode requested but no policy loaded. Halting now
kernel panic - not syncing: attempting to kill init
Will i have to do a full reinstall or is there another way to recover the system? I have a raid 4 array and I think the system don't like it, but it was working fine before so not sure whats happened.
Any help will be appreciated

sounds like you have kernel 2.6.9-1.678_FC3 , kernel panics are a known issue with that kernel. if you can update to kernel 2.6.9-1.681_FC3
this should fix your kernel panic error

Not sure what the exact problem is, but 'policy' sounds like it relates to SELinux. I'd try upgrading the kernel as well, but that might not be the problem. Also, make sure you install the udev update from Fedora Core's update server, because there's some debug code that accidently got left in the main release's udev package.
