Kai: That's the kernel that is on the CentOS 5 Install DVD. During the
past few days, I did "yum update" on our 3 Desktops and I will now
continue to do that, frequently, as if these Desktop boxes were
Servers. In the 2 Dell Dimension boxes, the kernel updated. In this
Compaq Evo D300v Celeron box, the kernel did not update. Lanny
