I have a similar problem.
When doing the software update, my computer froze with the kernel panic screen. Now when I boot up, I cannot boot from the CD-ROM drive but I can hold down T and get into Firewire target disk mode. When I try the OPTION key held down during startup, I get a cursor on the grey screen but no volumes to select. I have not tried too much else but I think I am gonna swap the hdd out and see if I cannot boot up off the CR ROM then, even though you would think that the hard drive, good or bad, would have nothing to do with being able to boot up off the DVD/CD drive during startup. Also tried the PRAM trick still the same thing. I also tried the NETBOOT option and that worked but I dont have an image server on the network. ;(
