why after i used up2date to install updates for fc4 i now have 3 operatingsystems to choose from there are 2 fedora and ofcours that god awful xp but after the updates theres fc4 2.6.11 and fc4 2.6.12 or something like that. did i make mistake by installing something? i know i installed a kernal cause in up2date that is first choice not sure if bad or good. and as for the fc4 2.6.11 and fc4 2.6.12 is there a way to get rid of fc4 2.6.11 or just not worth it and keep it there or vice versa? as for future updates should i not instal updated kernal or is that a good thing?
There is another entry for the new kernel. It's always a good idea to update the kernel, the purpose of the new entry is in case the update failed or there is some troublem with your new kernel. A failing kernel would prevent you to even boot, so you probably want the fail over entry to be in your bootloader.
Always use the newest kernel and don't remove the kernel which was previously working. Red Hat releases them and sets them to default for a reason. You can look at the kernel change logs to find out what's new and why.
