Boot problem




I moved my /boot from the main directory tree to a new partition. All of F7 was in the /dev/sda5 partition. I moved /boot to /dev/sda6 and with lots of rebooting got it to work. Here is my grub.conf file.

# grub.conf
#
#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,5)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora (2.6.22.7-85.fc7)
       root (hd0,5)
       kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.22.7-85.fc7 ro root=/dev/sda5  quiet
       initrd /initrd-2.6.22.7-85.fc7.img
title Fedora (2.6.22.5-76.fc7)
       root (hd0,5)
       kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.22.5-76.fc7 ro root=/dev/sda5  quiet
       initrd /initrd-2.6.22.5-76.fc7.img


Now the problem is, on the next kernel update it didn't work right. Instead of putting the new kernel in /dev/sda6 it made a new /boot directory in /dev/sda5. Here is what is in this directory:

[root k5di boot]# ls
config-2.6.22.9-91.fc7      System.map-2.6.22.9-91.fc7
initrd-2.6.22.9-91.fc7.img  vmlinuz-2.6.22.9-91.fc7
[root k5di boot]#

I expect I can just copy these to /dev/sda6 but why did the kernel update do this?
