Hi all:

First of all, thanks to all of you that answered me.
One more question: As a test, I opened the
/boot/grub/grub.conf
and I comment the previous FC4 kernel. After that, I
noticed that I was not able to 'enter' to Windows. So,
I uncomment the previous FC4 kernel, and all was fine.
SO, the question is: After uninstalling the previous
FC4 kernel, will I be able to have my dual boot? I
mean, will I be able to 'enter' either FC4 or Windows?
Thanks!
Hoffmann
