I doubt it, I suspect a problem in the new kernel handling software on fedora 12.
I have the same problem with any new fedora kernel that I install.

I think in my case it's because I use a grub in a very removed place from the installation.  When I did the upgrade and got to the kernel install part it made me a bit nervous right then that something might be wrong.  Usually I tell the install to put grub on the(non-bootable) partition that the new fedora's on;  and then whenever I get a new kernel I copy the grub kernel lines from it's boot to my custom boot/grub.  

Anyway, if it still boots from a grub, you can just make your own lines up in it for the new kernel, until this gets sorted out I guess?  Tell us if a new install works if you decide to do that?  I wouldn't bother if you got this far from an "upgrade" like I did, because of the work involved in setting up the system the way you want it again.  Also, leaving the drakut system in a confused state may be helpful, so that we know when they get the bugs out of it, that they really are gone.

Good luck!
