Moving forward, what are your recommendations in order for me to be

Boot from a "live" CD of some recent/reasonable vintage, mount the
filesystems and try to reinstall the old kernel installation? probably
as simple as a

1. "move installed kernel directory to another name"
2. "move kernel.old directory to kernel"

Bear in mind, I've not done this kind of fiddling for a while, so
I might have the precise details wrong.

1. Go into rescue shell.
2. Enter in: cd /mnt/boot; mv kernel kernel.old
3. Install kernel distribution from sysinstall
