IDconfig loss/removal kernel Panic & Synching

I am not exactly a newbie to Linux as I have been attempting to use it now for several or more years and am now finally getting comfortable with to OS. At the present I am using PCLinuxOS for reasons that it seems to work quite well for me. I have tried others and I have encountered various problems as in what I use a computer for, DTP and such, but my major concern at the moment as other than learning and using applications always seems to lie in updating, upgrading, patches and the like. My present dilemma seems to be with IDconfig, as I know what it is f and/or its intent, I am wondering why when attempting to say download SKYPE as with many other apps or software and such it tells me that among that which is going to occur is removal, and to be installed. As soon as I see that IDconfig is to be removed I now cancel as it means I will lose the ability to bootup after I install and any attempt to reboot is thwarted. I have researched and scanned for possible ways of remedying this issue but to little or no avail and reinstallation (normally) is my only option. as Once IDconfig, to the best of my knowledge and research, once gone its simply gone and option just and simply cannot [as I seem to take ]unable to reinstall. There was one instance where I found that which seemed to indicate that one could go to and/or use the command line as sudo and type in IDconfig, run it (or execute) after going to a specific directory, but after installing and doing thus, the very next time I attempted to reboot all I got was the kernel panic again and the synching issue again and unable to boot. Is there a way, other than reinstalling the Distro again or is it quite a technical issue or such? Understand, I am not a nubia, but I am self taught here, so any help here is or will be appreciated and if it is workable.
