Thanks for the suggestions.  The first thing I tried was the kernel.old 
but somehow I managed to have the same
problem.  It just dawned on me that I could build a Generic kernel on my 
laptop burn it on a cd (don't have a floppy)
and install it on the sick machine.  That is what I did and it's happily 
doing a cvsup right now that will be followed
by a make world and new kernel.

Many thanks to you, Andrew and Manfred for keeping me from drowning in a 
glass of water.
