Nope, you don't need to delete the old kernel. If it works the way mine did, next time you boot, there should be another entry in your boot menu called 2.6.12-22 or something like that. If you want to edit lilo to make the new kernel the default, click on configure your computer, after you enter your root password and it starts, go to the bottom of the list.

Once in boot, click on the advanced button and then you can set the default.

Hope that helps.

I had a shocking time getting Mandrake 10 to work with nVidia drivers.

It seems nVidia and Mandrake don't get along too well.
The problem was in the configuration file. After much editing and help from the nVidia and LinuxQuestions help forums, I got it to work. I will never update my nVidia driver again.

my two cents

I want to add to this because this has just recently helped me...

I was trying to get higher resolutions and could not succeed with the option "IgnoreEDID" because it was replaced in the latest drivers with a different keyword -> instead I tried "UseEDID" I added under Device section

Option "UseEDID" "FALSE"
Option "UseEDIDFreqs" "FALSE"
Option "UseEDIDDpi" "FALSE"
Option "ModeValidation" "NoEdidModes"

and I finally had resolution over 800x600.

Thanks to old reliable README file that came with the drivers(/usr/share/doc/nvidia*)

Finally, I can go on with my newbie Linux experience!
