I've been toying with Red Hat 9 for a few days now. I've been searching around google and learned a little bit about kernel upgrades. After failing to upgrade successfully a few times, I re-clean installed and tried again. This time I found out about up2date, so I ran it and updated everything including the kernel files. Here's the problem:
I don't use a boot loader because I didn't feel comfortable playing with the master boot loader because I still use windows. With my luck I'd probably need to reinstall XP also. Anyway, I boot into Red Hat by using the bootdisk made during installation. I created a new bootdisk to go with the new kernel with
While attempting to boot with this disk I received an error that said something like, "Boot failed please insert another disk and press any key" while it was trying to load vmlinuz. I booted back with the old bootdisk to the old kernel and remade another bootdisk in case it was the disk. The other disk also failed with the same error.
Is there something I'm doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
