Thanks for the reply, but you missed what I was asking.  I've already 
downloaded the appropriate files from the links that Johnny provided in 
a previous posting.
My question is, do we wait until the latest microcode_ctl rpm is 
installed or do it now?  My concern is that if I do it now the new rpm 
might undo what I've done.


Unencumbered by the thought process.
