up2date kernel?

How easy is it to update the kernel via up2date? Apparently if you have a version greater than 2.5.4 it'll even update the LILO config?

Does anyone have any experience using up2date for the kernel?

it will update to the latest redhat kernel available.

As long as you don't need a custom kernel it should be ok.
