OK. Then what is 'kernel-2.6.8-1.521.src.rpm' ?. I was under the
impression that an rpm with 'src.rpm' in its package name was a source
rpm. Not in this case obviously. One lives and learns. This rpm will not
install. An rpm -ivh (Uvh) goes through the motions of installing and
will, with rpm -qi, say its installed but on the next boot says its not
installed.

The source rpm for 2.6.8-1.521 isn't there but the 2.6.8-1.521 binary is
there so I will do as you suggest.

All these problems may be as a result of doing an 'upgrade' from RH8. I
tried to upgrade my laptop from RH8 to FC2 yesterday and it wouldn't do
it. Kept complaining about not being able to read the media when trying
to install the kernel, fatal error, bomb out. So, not having a lot on
the laptop to lose, and being able to copy it across from the desktop if
necessary, I did a new install. Went OK. No probs. However, the whole
appearance of the boot is different as are some other minor differences
on the desktop etc. Probably too much crap left on the machine after
upgrading from RH6.1 through the various releases to FC2. that are
interfering with things.

Thanks very much for your help and patience.
