If you have it, boot off of the mini iso, pull down and burn CD 2, then
use the fixit facility to start a fixit shell with teh CD.  From there
manually install the new kernel (it'll be in
/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/KERNELNAME/kernel) and boot from it.  From there you
should be able to finish the installworld.
