Kernal Help


On boot up, GRUB reads that I have 2 kernals. The Linux install one and one that I got from the auto update thing. I can use the latest one so does that mean it is compiled already or what? And if it isn't, how would I go about compiling or merging the 2?

you definately cannot boot with an uncompiled kernel,
unless it's a java kernel, and compiles on the fly, but that
would be so slowwwww.

Yes - in RH9 you can boot from either one. Try booting from the new one, when you are happy it works, as su open a text editor and open /etc/grub.conf - in grub.conf find the lines which refer to your older kernel and comment them out using the hash (#) key.
