Just went into the same trap and had to revive my system by calling mkinitrd from the rescue system. But the question is: Why is the UserMode Linux package installed on my system?
It is part of the kernel update ... if you look closely when doing a YOU, you will see that it is documented in the description of included packages.
If one does an online update without checking it comes along automatically. Fortunately forewarned is forearmed in my case and I managed to avoid it after seeing everyone else's problems. Waiting till it's fixed or the 2.6.10 version.
I never installed it separately and didn't even know that it is on my machine since today .
