Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I performed the Fedora 15 Upgrade from Fedora 14 which worked fine except when I reboot the system does not find Fedora 15 i.e. I see the Fedora 14 Kernel and not the Fedora 15 Kernel in the reboot sequence. Any help I can get to fix this would be much appreciated
My problem is that I performed the Fedora 15 Upgrade using Pre-upgrade, after which when the system rebooted I expected to see Fedora 15, but my system reloads Fedora 14 and I don't understand why. I do see one error message which is a warning saying that I have "Decrepated Config File". I don't understand what that means or how to fix it.
What happens when you do a ls -d /lib/modules/*? You should see a list of your installed kernels:
$ ls -d /lib/modules/*
/lib/modules/126.96.36.199-27.fc15.x86_64 /lib/modules/188.8.131.52-30.fc15.x86_64 /lib/modules/184.108.40.206-32.fc15.x86_64
Are you sure that your /boot partition was the one that the F15 installation used? Have you done a ls /boot/vmlinux* to see if the F15 boot loader is in that directory? If it's not there, do a sudo updatedb to update the mlocate data base, and then a locate -r 'vmlinux[^/]*$' to see what you have installed, and where it is installed.

While upgrading from Fedora 14 is supported, you are more likely to have a consistent experience by backing up your data and then installing this release of Fedora 15 over your previous Fedora installation.
To upgrade from Fedora 14 you should bring your system up to date before performing the upgrade.
This recommended reinstallation method helps to ensure the best system stability possible.
