Hi Daniel,
if you want people here to be able to answer your question, you need to 
provide us with a bit more information about your problem.
Is it a grub error? What messages do you get, when the system doesn't 
boot? Your partitions on harddisk, etc.
Have you tried booting in failsafe-mode?

Edgy should be stable in the same way as dapper was. As far as I know, 
the difference between them is the longer support-cycle (LTS) for dapper.
Nevertheless, the 'stable' should not be understood as in a generic 
debian (stable) system.

Why dont you boot your system with a live-cd and backup you home 
directory with all your config files?

Greetings
Christian
