No, I didn't remove the 2.6 test kernel and here is the directory
listing at /boot:
[root alt html]# ls /boot/
config-2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl  System.map
config-2.6.0-0.test1.1.26         System.map-2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl
grub                              System.map-2.6.0-0.test1.1.26
initrd-2.6.0-0.test1.1.26.img     vmlinux-2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl
kernel.h                          vmlinux-2.6.0-0.test1.1.26
lost+found                        vmlinuz
message                           vmlinuz-2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl
message.ja                        vmlinuz-2.6.0-0.test1.1.26

So, what do I need to do to repair and make bootable the 2.4 kernel?

Sam - thanks so much for the help
