Description of problem:
The 2.6.20-1.2300.fc5 version of kernel-kdump will not load. Kexec complains that it "Cannot determine the file type of /boot/vmlinux-2.6.20-1.2300.fc5kdump". Works fine with kernel-kdump-2.6.19-1.2288.fc5.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
[root@server ~]# rpm -qa kernel-kdump
[root@server ~]# vi /etc/sysconfig/kdump
[root@server ~]# /etc/init.d/kdump start
Cannot determine the file type of /boot/vmlinux-2.6.20-1.2300.fc5kdump

If you specify KDUMP_KERNELVER="2.6.19-1.2288.fc5kdump" in "/etc/sysconfig/kdump", it loads fine...

[root@server ~]# /etc/init.d/kdump start
[root@server ~]#

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
Kexec should load the kernel without complaint.

I think this bug is related to #238768 (which is for fc6).
