The new disk addressed a specific hardware related omission/problem.
Since the normal disk boots we do not need it.

Well if the rescue disk boots then you can boot a kernel.
This is an important point...
The rescue CDROM disk has some 'safe' configuration bits set
we just need to get a good current kernel on your hard disk.
When you say "I can't boot from the single processor kernel" what
are you telling me?
Can you disable all but one processor in the BIOS. Is a single
processor kernel on the hard disk and in the grub selection menu.
Are you seeing the graphical boot screen or the old style
text display with a the green OK messages. In text mode
it can be easier to see errors.
Can you boot to any of these initstates?
# 1 - Single user mode
# 2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3,
if you do not have networking)
# 3 - Full multiuser mode
# 5 - X11
Do they act differently when you try each?

Can you use the rescue disk and install (rpm -i) kernel-2.6.8-1.521
Do not install a smp kernel at this time.
In rescue mode can you comment out the fstab lines
for your SCSI RAID files system and if so does the box boot.
