Question Ultimate Newbie Question


Ok, so I keep reading on how I should go to /etc/grub.conf to edit grub so I can remove my old kernel as a boot choice. My question is, how exactly do I go to /etc/grub.conf I type is in terminal and all i get is permission denied, and I am logged in as root. Can anyone help this this? Thanks in advance.

TC a.k.a. Ultimate

try these steps
1. type 'whoami'. make sure your root.
2. type 'cd /etc'
3. type 'pico grub.conf'
4. edit it.

if you get error, tell me on which step.

that was great. I now see both kernels in grub. Now, to remove the old should I just delete its section from this terminal windo or put # infront of title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-27.8.0debug) - or infront of each line in that section. Thank you very much for the help.

You can do either, the # sign is suggested to be used first, just to test.
Then if there is a problem you can simply uncomment them (remove the #) and be back to a working setup.
If there isn't a problem, after a while you can safely remove the lines following the comments if you so choose.

Cool
