replace (mutandis mutandi) /vmlinuz- with /vmlinuz, and

What is (mutandis mutandi) ?

A Latin expression used in maths, meaning changing what needs to be changed. Ie, don't take the expression literally.

Ok, thanks.

My menu.lst shows this:

initrd /boot/initrd-

So, if you use that, you must make sure that your kernel is indeed /boot/vmlinuz-

Using uname -a I think.
Next time, when you uninstall anything, think twice, and have a real hard
look at what is going to be uninstalled. Don't just press "enter, enter,
enter". This is not windows!

I'm not sure if I mentioned windows, but I might not remembering that.

I mean that don't click "accept" without reading first, as windows users do. You are the administrator and have a responsibility to know what you are doing.

Yes ok.
