Damn I can't believe I forgot that!!!Everything is so new.You forget that it took you years to learn Windows little ins and outs ,you can't expect Linux(Fedora) to come to you as second nature in just a couple of weeks.

Thanks for sticking with me.I know this stuff is second nature to you guys.

I don't know if it matters much upgrading kernels when they come out.But I really thought it was important to know the process before I went to far.Still curious why I can't get networking installed on both kernels at the same time.I know it must be something to do with a shared file that can't be compiled to do two different kernels at once.But it is just a curiousity now that I at least know how to move on to a new kernel.

Many thanks again.

Does the nvidia uninstall the driver before installing it back on the new kernel?
There is no reason that the module wouldn't load unless the nvidia driver does something weird during the reinstall of the driver that messes it up for the old kernel. I've never installed that driver so I can't help much on that.
