A long time ago now. Maybe I was falling back to a previous 
kernel version that had not been uninstalled by yum, or was 
it YaST on SuSE Linux?

Perhaps keeping the rpm for a kernel that you know works, 
tucked away on the system would be a good move?

Also, if you downgrade the kernel version, would this have 
any effect on other packages on the system?

Kind Regards,
