multi kernel - no compile

Hi, I choose kernel 2.4 as default at first install, but now I wanna try the 2.6. So I install it all from /extra.

Then I edit the lilo, and add the boot option to kernel 2.6 as in boot directory. Then restart but I cant see the option.

I look back at /boot/vmlinuz and its linked to kernel 2.6, so I think slack automatically changed it, but when I "uname -a" it, it says kernel 2.4.

I already browse for some help but there only guide for compiling, not just "adding" like what Im tryn to do.

Did you run the "lilo" command after editing /etc/lilo.conf ?

D'oh! I forgot, yes now Im done, thanks.

re-edit /etc/lilo.conf so the image is now directed to the specified kernel, no vmlinuz symlink.

then run the /sbin/lilo


thx, and sorry for my newbieness..
