I think you misunderstood the bug. Your machine has already been
upgraded to F16. It just boots the wrong kernel. To verify this, you
can check with the following:
$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Fedora release 16 (Verne)
$ rpm -qa kernel*
should list the last 2 F14 kernels and the latest F16 kernel (assuming
your installonly limit is set to the default value of 3).
But when you do:
$ uname -r
You should see the F14 kernel.
The fix for you is simply fix your grub.conf by hand and possibly
regenerate your initramfs like this:
# dracut -f /boot/initramfs-<F16-kernel-ver>.img <F16-kernel-ver>
I am not sure about this last part, it might be unnecessary. I can't
recall what I had to do and why (I was fooling around with the boot
splash, and this was when F16 was in beta a month back).
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
