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.

when i am booting my system with Kernel 18.104.22.168-43.fc11.i686.PAE system is generating some noise and after login a popup window is coming up showing the message
"Your system has Kernel Failure"
and this is what the failure is:
When originally i installed the fedora 11 i had just one kernel, I do not remember which one of these two kernels was installed at that time. After Yum updates the second kernel got installed.
Now the situation is system is booting by default with kernel
which is having the problem. So is there any way by which i can uninstall this kernel so that i have just one kernel and the system will boot with that kernel.
Or if this is not possbile then can i change the default kernel with which system will boot.If yes, then please let me know how can i do that.
So as suggested by you if i am doing yum install kernel kernel-devel for kernel 22.214.171.124-167.fc11.i686.PAE will it remove the other kernel ?
After booting the system second time i am seeing the error message "Your system has Kernel Failure" even when i am booting the system with 126.96.36.199-167.fc11.i686.PAE kernel.
So i just want to remove the second kernel from my system.
Is there any method to remove the second kernel completely from the system ?
