Boot Problem after Kernel Upgrade

I am running RedHat 7.2 and using ext3 file system with software raid, using 2 20gig drives. The raid drive(s) are my boot drive. The 2 drives are identical and are used something like this /dev/hda1 = ext3, /dev/hdb1 = ext3, /dev/hda2 = swap, and /dev/hdb2 = swap. I made everything between the 2 drives the same. The mirrored drive is /dev/hda1 and /dev/hda2. The system has been running very well.

Over the weekend I did a kernel upgrade. The upgrade went ok and will boot and run from a floppy drive with no problems. But if I attempt to boot from the raid drive it will only boot the old kernel. I have updated grub.conf and have even attempted to enter the commands for booting from the command line. The grub menu never shows the commands entered into the grub.conf file and I receive a error "Can't find files" if I attempt to enter the command line.

I have attempted to find what I need to change on the RedHat site but I can't find any information about how to update grub while booting from a raid/ext3 file system.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
