Here is my grub.conf

title Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (2.6.9-22.0.2.EL)
         root (hd0,0)
         kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-22.0.2.EL ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
         initrd /initrd-2.6.9-22.0.2.EL.img
title CentOS (2.6.9-22.0.1.EL)
         root (hd0,0)
         kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-22.0.1.EL ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
         initrd /initrd-2.6.9-22.0.1.EL.img
title CentOS-4 i386 (2.6.9-22.EL)
         root (hd0,0)
         kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-22.EL ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
         initrd /initrd-2.6.9-22.EL.img

where do I put that option?

Well, I just tried new batteries.

No different.

Now I have cascaded KMS.  My graphical Centos boxes are at:

Switch 1, 'port' 8
Switch 2, 'port' 1  (port 6 on Switch 1 is the cascading port)

This system is on Switch 2, 'port' 5

Tomorrow morning, I will move it to port 4 on switch 1 (only open 
port on switch 1) and see what happens.

The frustrating part is that everything was fine until I did that 
java install.  folllowed by a yum update (which only pulled down a 
update to yum).

If no change, it is back to reinstall.  Maybe that is just as 
well.  I had to do a manual disk partition and did not make 
notes.  Redoing it will force me to make some notes....
