Configuring to be able to run new kernal with multiple kernal system Was: [SLE] kernel
Ok, from Erdal's message, this seems simple enough and does include at least
one step I didn't know about, BUT (big but), what if I don't want to upset
my existing 2 kernals ( I run both 2.2.xx and 2.4.0-4BG for different
reasons) I want to add an extra one, what changes to the proceedure do I
need to do?

and, if I download the already compiled SuSE kernal rpm's such as 2.4.2 from
the 7.1's /kernal area how do handle these?

I'm most likely asking something that's in a howto, if so just give me the
referance please and i'll try that first.


thanks
scsijon
