in response to the edit lilo part is there more that should be added then the following:
image = /boot/vmlinuz-generic-2.6.7
initrd = /boot/initrd.gz
root = /dev/hda1
label = Linux2.6
will it be able to find the system.map and .config file that go with the new kernel...what i have been doing is sym linking the system.map-linux2.6.7 with system.map...but then i feel that makes it so that i have to boot only the 2.6.7 kernel
thanks for any help in advance...
