When you boot the machine, you should be able to press ESC which will  
allow you to choose the kernel to boot from.

If you can specify the machine/hardware etc then we may be able to  
help.  There is a known issue with certain hardware and kernels that  
mean that you have to run a script after the kernel upgrade.

Check out


and execute the actions required at the bottom of the page for if you  
are already running Ubuntu_8.04.
