 My current dilemma is trying to rescue the upgrade on this machine. Can
 you help with that?

I had an "upgrade" from F14 to F16 hang. Can you boot into the upgrade kernel again and let it try again? You'll probably have to do lots and lots of cleanup afterwards (I sure did!) but it may get you past this stage.

I can't boot into any sort of installed kernel.

I can use the rescue mode of the Installation/Upgrade CD.

I get three choices; when I run the fakd diagnostic this is the output:
Selecting fakd  Run diagnostic

When I select the shell environment, I can do
chroot /mnt/sysimage

From there I can see my old partions and move around.

I rebuilt the /var/lib/rpm data (rm -f __db.*; rpm -vv --rebuilddb).

I think that my best bet is to try and continue via yum.

I've done this once or twice before a long time ago.

I vaguely recall that this begins with download the Fedora 15 Release rpm. However, I don't see any clear instructions on ow to do so in the Wiki.

Much thanks.
