Boot Load Screen choice question
Todays removal of RH9 and installation of Core 2 was a cinch! Here is where my question comes in. Once I had Core 2 up and running, I did the Up2date thingy (assuming this was the natural progression of the installation process i.e. get OS on hard drive, update OS...blah blah) During the process it updated/installed a newer kernel.
Problem (not really a problem, just a minor annoyance) is now...when the boot loader screen comes up upon start-up, the old kernel is still the default, not the newer kernel.
How do I get the default set to the newer kernel during this loader-upper-choice screen? Could I even go so far as remove the older kernel from the choice list so it reads just the New Kernel (default) and Windows Xp?
Well anyone willing to help me out here I would appreciate it.

you will need to start your FC2.
Open a terminal session (Command prompt) su - to the use root and edit the file : /etc/grub.conf.
There you'll see default=<number>
Change the number to the entry that you want as default.
Here is an example
default=0 timeout=10 splashimage=(hd0,5)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2199.nptlsmp) root (hd0,5) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2199.nptlsmp ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2199.nptlsmp.img title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2197.nptlsmp) root (hd0,5) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2197.nptlsmp ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2197.nptlsmp.img title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2194.nptlsmp) root (hd0,5) kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2194.nptlsmp ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb initrd /boot/initrd-2.4.22-1.2194.nptlsmp.img title DOS rootnoverify (hd0,0) chainloader +1
