What kernels and initrds do you have in there? Is vmlinuz-22.214.171.124-88.fc7 in that directory, along with initrd-126.96.36.199-88.fc7.img? >> >> There are other ways to manage this, but lets take things one step >> at a time and get what you are trying here working, and you >> understanding what is going on. >> >> One other point - you should really upgrade to a newer version - F9 >> or F10.
