Scott: Great! If I can locate kernel-headers-2.6.18-53.1.14.el5 and
kernel-2.6.18-53.1.14.el5 I can use the rpm -e command to remove them
and then yum update again and that should update the kernel in her box.
How do I locate them? Practicing on my box (wife is using her box) and
rpm -qi shows a lot of information about the files but doesn't show
where they are located. TIA, Lanny
